Symbol by Cazillo, on Flickr

Assignment is to show your patriotism for your country. Here in the USA Independence Day is July 4th, so help us celebrate by showing how you feel for your country. If you have a short photo story with 3-5 images that is fine too. Photos must be posted by July 5th at 5pm Eastern to be eligible for the video and blog post. Keep shooting!

Canada Day fireworks.July 01 2013.

Exposure 4 secs
Aperture f/22.0
Focal Length 250 mm
ISO Speed 200


These were taken from around 4 miles away on a nearby hill overlooking the city and area of fireworks, using a 55-250 lens.
First time ever shooting fireworks(watched Greg's video on fireworks and went from there).
I was actually a little to tight on a lot of shots and had to pull back to get the larger ones in frame.

Hi Greg,
You can't argue using something that works like a charm.You wouldn't believe how many times I've used techniques that i saw here.You keep assigning them and I'll try to keep doing them.

Being a former Marine, and also having been a fan of Gregg Cazillo for a few years now I felt the need to respond to this keep shooting Monday.

There has been a flag flying on the front of my home since September 12, 2001 and this photo is just the most recent one, I think it's the 6th one I've had to replace the original with but I will continue to do so until all of our troops return. God Bless them all and their families.

This fort was used by general George Washington to fight the British.Its high on a mountain with great views for miles.He used this to his advantage to track the enemy.
