Fireworks in Windsor. People dancing. Firefighters in moon suits. A hike with a park ranger.

Saturday July 3 was a busy day. Varied it was.

I have nothing pithy to say. (!)

Here are photos.

Enjoy

I hate busy fireworks photos. Gimme a couple of bursts and some interesting light trails and everything will be hunky dory. I liked that the electric blue matched the hue of the sky. If you look close enough, you can see stars in the sky and the red light of a radio tower on Mt. St. Helena.

I put the photo in above to illustrate how easily you can overlook something going on in the background. Take a look at the one below.
