Instead of showing a lot of similar photos I tried to pick varied types of fireworks. This is another of my favorite shot with its white stars look. To the upper right of the photo you can also see the moon. Over time I’ve learned that with fireworks just keep snapping and review the photos later. Of course it helps to go to a lot of displays to fine tune camera settings and practice exactly when to snap the shot. I’d also like to close this series with my YouTube Fireworks Finale video.

We continue our look at the Independence Day fireworks at Magic Island with this huge waterfall of fire.  This one reminded me of some of the exploding waterfall like fireworks in the Nagaoka Fireworks show at the Honolulu Festival. While there are many places to watch fireworks it hard to beat getting at close a possible so you can see and hear the enormous explosions. The only downside to being at Magic Island is since this one was launch from land there is no way to catch the reflection in the ocean.

On the Fourth of July I joined tens of thousands of people at the Magic Island portion of Ala Moana Regional Park for the largest fireworks show in Hawaii. This show ran almost 15 minutes providing an amazing show for those in the park as well as people watching from miles around. I’m going to share some of my favorite photos I took that night starting with this one. I always use a longer exposure because I love to see the long streaks of light.
