Celebrating the Fourth of July Independence Day with the stars and stripes flying proudly against a background fireworks display. The fireworks show was in New Lenox, IL, USA. The flag flies over a gas station in Lisle, IL, USA where a fast-food restaurant parking lot across the street gives me a very good spot to sit and wait for the breeze to unfurl the flag.
So, two images, one of the flag and one of the fireworks when just for once I snapped the shutter at the exactly right moment, and it stayed open long enough. Both taken with Nikon D3000 and Nikkor AF-S 18-55 mm lens, then layered in Photoshop.
