Just like my uber-creative (not) title up there says, I'm sharing a few favorite firework photos with you from the fourth.

 Naturally, I don't get to take firework shots very often - well, only once a year:) - so it took a bit of getting used to for me.  At times I had my shutter-speed too high, resulting in the squiggly-line effect, but when I lowered it, the colors wouldn't come out as well.  Nevertheless, I acquired the following favorite captures...
{This one was supposed to go the other way, but for some reason it uploaded wrong. Thought I'd share it anyway, though...}
And sweet Megan from the little photo shoot that I did with her.  I love the sunburst here:)

Which one is your favorite?
I hope that you all had a wonderful Independence Day, my dears!:-)

Love and Blessings,


  1. Cool, I like the second one! You are so luck to get fireworks pictures.. I am hoping to get some today because we didn't get ours the rained.

  2. Oh, beautiful! I am so jealous of your camera! We went to see fireworks this year but arrived at the last, like, three fireworks. I got ONE blurry picture!
    How come you have so many followers on a not-your-main-blog? I only have 13!

  3. Oooh, so thats what I was doing wrong. I need learn how to adjust the shutter speed on my camera....hmm, maybe I need to open my camera's manual...

    I love the photos!


  4. Oh, I love these, Hannah! Great job. That last one is amazing. Beautiful girl, beautiful sun flare! :)

    -- much love,
    Lindsay <3

  5. They're lovely! And the squiggly lines come from not using a tripod. :-)

  6. So cool! My favorite is the 2nd picture of the looks like a *huge* explosion! :)

  7. Beautiful, Hannah! I love the second picture!

  8. Hannah

    Also, yes I was going to post about it on my main! :)

  9. What lovely pictures! My favorites are the 1st and the 3rd. Very pretty fireworks!
