Fireworks over Grand Lagoon

A couple years ago I had the pleasure of being in Panama City Beach over the July 4th holidays.  I was able to catch a couple firework displays.  One at Pier Park beach and then one at the Grand Lagoon.  I was able to get a good place on the public dock at the end of Dolphin Drive.  Don’t forget to check out some of the other Fireworks I’ve captured over the years.

Pier Park Fireworks

I try hard to find new places to go for July 4th.  Last summer, I found myself in Florida at the Pier in front of Pier Park in Panama City Beach.  I thought it was a pretty cool experience.  There was a huge crowd, but it did not look that big since everyone was spread out on the beach.

Woodstock Fireworks

Every July 4 in the US requires red, white, and blue fireworks.  This display was in Woodstock.  While it was not the most comfortable, the rain cleared out just in time and it wasn’t too bad getting to sit in the back of the van and watch.

Fireworks Over Lake Allatoona

It has been several years since my schedule has allowed me to make it to the Allatoona Yacht Club fireworks display.  I made it to the shore of the lake a little later than I wanted and had to settle for a view further from the parking lot.  However, I was still able to get a good angle to watch the show and get a few good shots as well.

Jasper Fireworks

This year was the first time I went to see the fireworks in Jasper Georgia.  I can say that for a small town, I was impressed.  My guess is that we just had the perfect spot to watch from and good friends to share it with, but the fireworks were good too.

The week before the University of Tennessee played Alabama, I was taking a walk around Knoxville.  I was taking photos around Neyland Stadium when I began hearing fireworks.  I made it to this spot just in time to get the last few minutes of the fireworks.  With the UT Football bus parked by the firework locations, I am assuming that it was a send off for the players, but I was never able to find out definitively. Talk about a fun run through the streets of Knoxville.  I’m just glad I did not get squished.

It’s almost that time again.  Time for fireworks and celebration.  Two summers ago, I photographed the Fireworks display on Lake Allatoona and then last year, I went to both Lake Arrowhead and Chattanooga.  This is another shot I took while at Pops on the River in Chattanooga.  I think this year may be a return to Pops because it was so much fun last year.

I am sitting here listening to it rain for the millionth time this year.  We are only a few months into the year.  All I can say is that I hope some of this is spread through out the summer also.  This shot is not of the rain, obviously.  This was from the fireworks show at Lake Arrowhead just north of Atlanta.  This one was a couple days before Pops on the River and a good chance to get some practice.  I had set up in what seemed like the most likely place, but learned that it was not as the show began.  I had to grab the camera and run to another location.  If I get to shoot this one again, I will chose my placement with a little better foresight.

The Watching Crowd

Today’s Photo:  The Watching Crowd

I am not a crowd person.  If there are more than thirty people together, I get nervous.  It is not that I am claustrophobic or anything.  I mean, I kayak and go spelunking and never have a problem.  I think it has more to do with the crowd than …Continue Reading Here…
