More fireworks from 2012 edition of Kewaunee Wisconsin’s Trout Festival. The fireworks show lit up the sky above the harbor creating beautiful reflections on the water’s surface.

Here, I’ve enlarged a part of the reflection from the image above, to give you a more detailed view of the reflection ripples.

Fireworks Reflections

This is the first of several photos I’ll post from the annual Trout Festival held in Kewaunee, WI.

I make it a point to position myself close to the Kewaunee harbor water’s edge because I also want to capture the reflections in the water which I think are as beautiful as the fireworks, themselves.  I particularly like the way the white reflections stand out among the deep red in this one.

I’m afraid the small size format of my blog doesn’t do these images justice, since a larger view is required to see the fine details and fully appreciate them. If you have a larger monitor, you can click on the photo to see a larger version.

Strange Fire

This is one of the most unusual fireworks effects I’ve photographed.  It was an arch of white light that sparkled for several seconds and then finished with a bright flash (the orange-ish ball above it) and loud boom.  Almost as impressive is the reflection that it created on the lake and the wet beach between the effect and my camera.

This is the last of the fireworks photos I’ll post from Algoma’s Shanty Days festival.  You can look over all my fireworks photos from this year by selecting the “Fireworks” Category in the left margin of this site or clicking HERE. There are 11 different images in the collection.

As always, if you find an image you like on this site, please share it with others.

Spider in the Sky

The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this image was, “That looks like a green spider on its web!” This might be my favorite photo of Algoma’s Shanty Days fireworks show.

As long as I’m using a bit of imagination, the two white star bursts remind me of flies caught in the web.

Of course, I didn’t and couldn’t have planed it. I just accidentally captured it. Right place + fluke timing = pleasant surprise!

Well…am I right? Do you think it looks like a spider and web? Is this cool or what?

Bonus Photo:  another multiple burst, Shanty Days fireworks image.

If you find these images interesting, please share this post with your friends.  I’d like to increase the number of regular visitors to PopsDigital.com.

The Big Bang

This was the “big one” at Algoma’s Shanty Days fireworks show. The massive spread of this effect took me by surprise. As you can see, it dominated the sky and pushed beyond the view of my camera. I widened my camera’s framing after this shot, but never saw another one quite this big.

If you look back through the posts of the last couple of days you can gain some idea of how much larger it was compared to the normal. As you look at the other Shanty Days fireworks photos, compare the position of the Algoma pier light (that little red dot in the lower half of the photo, near the right edge). You can see, the others don’t go beyond the pier light.

Fireworks Over Algoma

Another view of the fireworks display to wrap up Algoma’s Shanty Days.

It was a perfect night for fireworks – pleasant temperatures, no wind and a beautiful full moon reflecting off Lake Michigan.  (Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the full moon in my shots from the position I was in. My camera was pointed north and the moon was in the east.)

More fireworks images from the Shanty Days show to come. Check back soon.

Shanty Days Fireworks

One of the charming aspects of small town life is the annual (fill-in-the-blank) festival.  Every community commemorates and celebrates some aspect of its heritage or culture. In the case of Algoma, WI it’s “Shanty Days.”  The finale of every Shanty Days festival is the Sunday night fireworks display.

The launch site is at the Algoma harbor.  I set up my camera on the beach, near the water’s edge.  Those who are familiar with Algoma’s harbor will recognize the tiny red light near the right edge of this photo as the famous pier light.

I snapped several interesting images from this show.  I’ll be posting more, including one that reminds me of a green spider on its web and one of the most unusual fireworks effects I’ve seen, so check back soon.

Fireworks Watercolor

This image is one of my favorites from the series I took at Kewaunee’s Trout Festival fireworks show.

I wouldn’t consider the fireworks burst the best of the bunch I took, but I find the reflection on the water awesomely spectacular. The purples, the reds, the greens…a literal watercolor painting in the harbor.  The full moon is showing off a bit, too.

Lighting Up the Harbor

Fireworks, on the opening night of the annual Trout Festival, lit up the sky and harbor of Kewaunee, WI.  The full moon offered it’s own amazing illumination and reflection.

Those familiar with the Kewaunee harbor will recognize the historic tug, Ludington, on the right side of the photo.  The little bright dot beyond the point where the fireworks were launched is the light of Kewaunee’s lighthouse.  On the left side is the Coast Guard station. The orange streak reflecting on the water (near the middle of the channel) is from the flashing lights of the Coast Guard boat – positioned to keep boats clear of the fireworks launch area.
