While out of town over the 4th of July, I was sure to snag my sketch book, Prisma pencils, and my trusty camera.  Since my telephoto lens rolled off the counter and will no longer focus, I decided to try my hand at the Macro setting, and messing around with some long exposure shots.  I’ll admit I’m no professional, but I’m also pretty dang proud of these shots, especially considering that the only editing I felt was needed was some cropping and minor adjustments to light/color balance.  I have spent the last day sifting and sorting through almost 300 frames, so I’ll have to add another post when I get all the way through.  For now, here are a few of my favorites from the fireworks show over the lake we camp by and a link to my facebook album where you can see the rest.

Happy Saturday, hope you’re staying cool!
