Fortunately, I was able to find a firework show this year which was on Sunday, July 3.  It was on Lake Allatoona at the Allatoona Yacht Club.  I had almost decided to skip the event and just go to one Monday night.  I am SO glad I decided to go.  While sitting on the lake shore just on the other side of a small cove from where the Yacht Club is, I began seeing a large thunderhead moving near the lake.  I set the camera up and captured some bolts of lightning.  Not a good sign, maybe the rain was moving in.  I also got a few shots of the hundreds of boats lining the lake.

At 9 PM, the show was supposed to start.  9:02 PM and still no show, but no rain either.  And then, all the sudden, Fireworks.  I began taking photos and rapidly as the fireworks were going off.  I sat through about 30 minutes of beautiful fireworks.  What a sight.  The Alltoona Yacht Club really puts on a show.

I got finished packing up and literally ran back to the truck to beat some of the crowd.  While we were waiting in traffic (My father was kind enough to put up with my photographic jaunt), I was reviewing some photos and noticed what I thought were additional fireworks (Lightning) in the background.  This was confirmed when I opened them in Lightroom for a little post processing.  This is one of those double features…
