Fireworks 2015

July 13, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Every year on Independence Day, I shoot the fireworks here in Washington, D.C. This year was unique for two reasons. First, I had the opportunity to shoot from the steps of the Capitol, which gave me an unusual perspective. Second, we had just experienced a lot of rain and the clouds were very low. The air was also very hazy. This created an atmosphere in the photos that felt somehow otherworldly. I hope you agree this made the photos a little extra special. Click on a photo to see it larger and let me know if you have a favorite!

The cannons fired during the playing of the 1812 Overture by the National Symphony Orchestra on the west front of the Capitol.
