The reason I went to the riverfront last Thursday was to view the fireworks and to practice photographing them. The previously scheduled July 4 fireworks had been postponed because the water levels were dangerously high.
I wanted to catch fireworks cascading over the Hartford skyline, but I was too close to the barges where the fireworks were ignited, so most of the fireworks were too high in the sky. But, here are a couple of images that turned out OK. I learned a few things about photographing fireworks that I can use next year.
