You may or may not recall that the Canada Day fireworks hadn't been the best this year. I thought they just weren't great for me from my bedroom window, but, apparently, they were somewhat lacking for everyone. On Saturday, the town staged a Do-Over.
I returned to the trail bridge location from some of my past years' shoots. I like that I can include town hall from this vantage point. I took this ↓ photo before I got to the exact spot from where I would shoot because I liked the light on the former mill (now apartments) complex (left).
Although this is a good spot for the fireworks and to include town hall in the process, the building etc always turns out very black. I was hoping to do some light blending this time, and set up my camera and tripod to do so. Alas! when the fireworks began my plans were immediately scuppered (yes, Blogger, it is a word) because the fireworks were going off more directly over town hall this year. Sigh.
