This is my second place image in the fireworks category at the Wichita Riverfest Photo Contest. Photographing the fireworks this year was made more difficult because they changed the launch site from previous years, and specifics were not publicized. They even added a couple of different launch sites to the mix, there were actually fireworks going off about 40 yards to my right here, but they were way too close to shoot. As you can probably imagine, it is very helpful to know exactly where they are being launched from ahead of time so you can work out a suitable camera location in order to include a pleasing foreground.
I got pretty lucky considering, and found a spot on a steep hill, halfway into a flower bed on the riverbank from which to shoot this image. We do what we must.
