Located on the west bank of the Potomac River in Dumfries, Virginia. My husband and I took the kids to my sister’s house for a sleepover and went on a date with 13 other friends. Took a small charter boat to this little paradise near home. It was a blast!! They call this event the “Not on the 4th Fireworks”. It was the weekend before the 4th of July. Good food, good fun and a beautiful presentation of fireworks. I like how the palm tree reflects on the hood of the car. :)

    Great capture! The fireworks are beautiful but what makes this great for me is how the people are ‘lit up’ (I’m sure there’s a word for that but it escapes me at the moment) by the other light :-)

  • Thanks for your thoughtful comments Trish! The word that comes to my mind is illuminated, perhaps? I’m really glad that I stood back and captured the entire scene. It made it a bit more interesting for a fireworks shot. :) Glad you like it!
