I decided to test out my ability to do long exposures with fireworks. It's actually incredibly difficult to properly capture fireworks on camera (although some cameras now come with a "fireworks mode" feature. That's cheating!). I got a few great shots, as well as some incredibly eerie shots as well (nothing says "Fourth of July" quite like a guy in a lawn chair watching essentially a massive explosion). I spent the majority of the night with my camera by my feet, blindly taking photos and stopping to check what I was doing only when there was a break in fireworks. It was essentially a night of spray-n-pray, but I'm excited with the results.
The best part was Nashua's fireworks were over by 9:45. Plenty of time to go home and watch Pops Goes the Fourth from the comfort of our living room.
