Happy 4th of July!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to take a minute to wish everybody a Happy Fourth of July. Stay safe, enjoy some good BBQ and celebrate!

This is a shot I took at Disney’s Magic Kingdom during the ‘Wishes’ fireworks display. The new Fantasyland area includes a Little Mermaid ride – Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid. Prince Eric’s castle stands prominently in the foreground with a beautiful purple glow.

Happy New Year

Here is a “blast from the past.” This is a fireworks shot I took in 2010 at EPCOT. Originally titled “Fireworks Over Torii Gate” this was a 25 second exposure in order to capture multiple fireworks in one picture. Just wanted to share a quick post and wish everybody a very Happy New Year. I hope your 2014 is your best year ever. I truly appreciate all of the support and encouragement of my blog over the years. Thanks for all your friendship!

Reflections

On Sunday I got to take a long overdue break and relax for a day at Disney! I started out at the Magic Kingdom and ended the day at Epcot. I always enjoy the fireworks show Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. It’s usually a challenge to try and find a new spot to shoot from to keep it fresh. I had scouted out a spot the last time I was there. On my way to that spot I caught a glimpse of the water and the idea of getting the fireworks reflecting in the water got to me. I walked around to find the best place to stand to get what I was looking for. I really like the colors in this and the way the streaks kind of look like wheat stalks blowing in the wind!
