Fireworks from Draper Pioneer Days Celebration

I love fireworks, they have been magical for ever since I can remember. As I kid I always wanted to be at the park and underneath them. My kids are less excited about loud noises so we watch them from my parents back yard.

As a photographer I find fireworks fascinating because they look so different in camera (can't really say "on film" anymore.....) the streaks and patterns fascinate me. Probably always will!

These are my best 5 from this years show! Yes that is the moon in case you wondered.

A Sunrise and two Deer in a Graveyard.... no REALLY!!

Grabbed this shot on my way to work on Monday, Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 right in front of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I love these cotton ball type clouds. Love love LOVE!

After leaving work I drove past the football stadium and spotted these deer in the graveyard across the street. Hung a quick U-Turn and chased them down. They were really hard to shoot because the insisted on staying in the shadows and moving just as I pressed the trigger.

Momma Deer

The Fawn, he had a twin that was more camera shy.

All in all not a bad day!
