FMTSO: July Fourth Celebration
We celebrated this fourth of July watching fireworks in Boulder City, Nv.
Boulder City is on the outskirts of Las Vegas and is home to the Hoover Dam or close to it anyway.
This event was a camera club outing/field trip
and so for the first time, I learned how to shoot fireworks correctly.
We had a lot of fun.
I haven't edited any of the photos yet, but I'd like to make them more vibrant.
The photo above is one of my favorites.
It reminds me of a giant colorful dandelion that would make all my wishes come true if I just blew on it.
I really took a lot of photos.
The thick white in the above photo reminds me of feather,
the kind of feathers that would be on the head of an indian chief.
This next photo is one that I really like a lot.
My husband took this picture with his camera which has a different lens than mine.
He did a fantastic job.
I edited the hue to make the colors pop more and it looks great.
So, I think I need to edited most of my photos to make them look like this one.
Oops, this one isn't my hubby's photo. This one is mine too.
The photo below is my hubby's It is one of my very favorite pics from the fourth.
These fireworks were lower to the ground and I like that you can see the tree line in the background
It looks like the whole city is bursting with colorful, fiery, energy.
Normally, we would spend a quiet evening at home sitting in our charis out on tht front lawn chatting with the rest of our neighbors. But, we ventured out and had a really good time.
When the fireworks display was over we went to a bar called Remedy's and we ate and had a couple of drinks with friends and other camera club members.
We really had fun.
I love summer!
