A crowd of wide-eyed spectators watch the Fourth of July fireworks show from Selner Beach in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. Along with the booming colors the crowd was serenaded by the gentle, rhythmic sound of Lake Michigan waves on the shore.
I enjoy photographing fireworks. I particularly enjoy capturing the fine detail. Unfortunately, you have to really zoom in to see the kind of detail I’m talking about. Fortunately, with the large megapixels of today’s cameras, you can see some amazing detail when you enlarge the image. You won’t be able to see that kind of detail in this image, but you can view a larger version to get a better, overall view by clicking on the photo. When you do, a full-screen version will open in a new browser tab.

I’ve photographed the fireworks in Kewaunee many times, but I usually do so from a spot on the harbor. I like capturing the reflection of the firework’s colors on the water’s surface. (Check some of the previous Kewaunee fireworks posts on this site HERE) This year, I decided to try a different location, joining the spectators on the beach.
The fireworks are discharged from the pier that stretches out into the lake.
