Colorado Fireworks

Colorado Fireworks

You can’t buy fireworks in Seattle. On the reservations, yes, but not in Seattle. When I was in Denver, it turned out they sell fireworks, but if you want the *good* ones, you need an out of state license, registration, and destination. I’m in love with the “someone else’s problem” aspect – they don’t care if they’re legal where you’re going, as long as it isn’t Colorado. Anyway, I was registration-less, so crummy fireworks it was. The little ones are actually great for taking pictures of. They stay mostly in the same place so you know where to point your camera, and you can get really close, so the picture is different from the big sky shots you often see of professional fireworks. Although the scene will be dark, fireworks are bright enough that you don’t need too much equipment, or even a very long exposure.  I got these at 1/5 sec handheld.  The camera shake works out ok since the fireworks are moving too.   Take a lot of pictures – you never know what you’ll get!
