Captured tonight at our annual WEBN fireworks, a labor day weekend tradition for the last 34 years. The fireworks are shot from an enormous barge that sits on the Ohio River between two of our bridges connecting Ohio to Kentucky. At different times throughout the show, explosives are also shot from the two bridges. We were lucky again this year to get front row center seats along the riverside at the last minute.

No flash, no crop, no edit, no tripod.

I hesitated on posting this one, as it’s clearly blurred at the bottom, but I dig the lines of fireworks just bursting from the barge and the flaming red color all around. I did nothing to enhance it. Just came out of the camera that way!

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?
