Photographer's Note

July 4th fireworks over Clearlake were pretty spectacular this year. I got lucky on this shot to capture one, very large firework explosion. Although it's 4300 feet tall, Mount Konocti looks dwarfed in the background. I just love when you look up and a firework explosion seems to fill up the sky, and the huge orange ones like this are my favorites.

I must have held that camera up to my eye most of the night, and I undoubtedly looked like a victim of spousal abuse by the end of it. Theoretically it would have been great to have a tripod, but with all the people milling about, and the unpredictability of where each firework would explode in the sky, I doubt it would have helped.
