Thanks Pea-n-Me! I can't wait to try to shoot some fireworks with my new toy. That's if DH will let it get near the beach!

Most of my patriotic/summer pics for July were posted in my Sampson State Pk thread, but I'll put a few different ones in here...



Summer sky... this was taken with a Sears 60-300mm F4-F5.6 (K-mount, auto-aperture) that I picked up locally a few months ago for $30. My initial reaction was that it was a waste even at that price, but I tried it a little more on this trip and was surprised that I actually got some pretty sharp photos with it. The contrast is a bit flat but that can be tweaked pretty easily in Lightroom. I guess it'll do until I get a 300mm F4 prime.



Some military music...







Icy drinks while waiting for the rain to stop...



I'll try to get some new pics done specifically for the assignment!

Is it okay to post more then one set of photos? If so great if not disregard these images.

From a float trip on the elk river in Missouri nothing says summer quite like floating down the river.



You can see the canoes on the beach while my son plays with grandma behind them.



Pulled up on the beach for some fun.


Just a view from the shore. We picked up the can that someone had left.

No pictures from the trip I wasn't comfortable taking the camera on the river.

Finally got around to processing and converting from RAW my fireworks shots. Taken July 5, 2009 from Negley Park overlooking the Susquehanna River and City Island, location of the Harrisburg PA fireworks display. It was a reasonably calm night with not alot of air moving to clear the smoke from previous fireworks.









Harvey Taylor Bridge and the Susquehanna River after the fireworks

Hi everyone, I just found this thread and thought I'd share a few pictures from the Great Circus Parade. It's an old Milwaukee tradition that finally returned after a six-year hiatus. It's such an amazing parade and is just as grand as the Rose Parade and Macy's Parade. There was one part of the parade that was called the Patriotic section so I thought I'd share a couple of those. Hope you enjoy!





Have you ever seen the movie Toby Tyler? This wagon was featured in the beginning scenes!

I love when the lilys bloom. They are right out my back kitchen window and you can smell them in the whole down stairs of the house.

Finally got my "6th of July" pictures ready!

I actually celebrated the 4th on July 6th since that is when the local Fire Chief who works at camp was available to shoot the fireworks off! Yes, I was at Goshen Boy Scout Reservation, Goshen, VA last week and loved it!

We walked almost the entire camp over to a hill above the lake and some local residents came in for a beautiful fireworks display. Here are a few traditional, but very patriotic fireworks shots.

Here are a few fireworks shots taken over three days, all of them using the Mississippi river as a 'prop'.


From the Taste of Minnesota in St. Paul on 7/3, looking over downtown St. Paul from the High bridge:







From Minneapolis' Red, White and Boom show on 7/4. The bridge in these shots is the Hennepin Ave. Bridge.







From the Taste of Minnesota again, this time taken while standing on the Wabasha St. Bridge.

And more traditional fireworks shots from camp last week

And the last from my Canon G9 which died on the last night of camp (out of warranty too) but I did finally convince myself with DH's help yesterday to get a Canon XSi which I already like very much!

On with the show:

Here's one of the US Flag flying outside an interesting building:

I like the angle and composition, but I think the lens flare detracts from the pic. Also, the blown highlights in the building aren't too great, but it *is* how it looked to my eye from the reflecting sunlight, so....

Here's my Harrisburg, PA fireworks shot -- from the opposite side of the Susquehanna river from spinetnglr's! :

I'm curious if anyone knows why the sky seems so much darker in spinetnglr's pics than mine -- there couldn't have been more than 5-10 minutes separating them! I guess it's because I was shooting more into the setting sun and he was shooting in the opposite direction ... but, I'm only guessing....
