Holly Springs Fireworks

SmugMug Daily Link

Those of us that live in the Raleigh, NC area are lucky because we have a multitude of fireworks displays to go see over several nights.  The Town of Fuquay-Varina, where we live, always hosts their display on the 3rd of July so as not to conflict with downtown Raleigh, etc.  Unfortunately, this year, their festivities got rained on.  Still, the folks there early enjoyed the vendors and inflatables and then at 8:30 they shot off their fireworks under light drizzle.  On July 4th, I like to go to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park (DBAP) to see baseball (this time USA Baseball vs. Chinese Taipei).  The fireworks are shot off in the middle of the ball field, and we had excellent seats and a view for them.  Then on the 5th, because we have not partied enough or seen enough fireworks yet, the Town of Holly Springs has their display.  The shots in the collage are all from the Holly Springs show.  You should have heard the crowd when the smiley face lit up the sky!  My favorite may be middle top where the shot going up is spinning like a tornado. How cool!  I had my Canon SX40 and S3 both on my neck taking turns using various manual settings, and sometimes auto, along with the continuous shooting feature on the SX40 to get the shots.  Fun!  I keep one eye on the viewfinder and the other on the sky and what a show it is.
