Fireworks for Memorial Day

Every year on the Memorial Day weekend, there is a fireworks display put on by the town of North Hempstead, across the harbor from Sea Cliff.  So we walk down to the shoreline and find a place to sit on the rocks, and wait for the show!  It was great this year because the wind was light and the smoke had a chance so accumulate.  Many time fireworks are just bright bursts against a black sky.  This photo has a lot more subtlety with the smoke from the explosions everywhere.  Makes the scene appear a bit mystical, I think.

Love, love, love the colors! The brilliant purples and pinks, subtle green along the shore all against the black background - wow! bsk
