Denver Fireworks

I went on a photo walk with the Illuminate Photography Workshop group this past weekend.  It’s run by Efrain Cruz and Armando Martinez are great instructors of the group and lead the free monthly night photo walks in and around Denver.  We started out my go to location for shooting the Denver skyline and so while people where shooting the skyline, Armando and I decided to run one of our cars to the finish location so that we could just drive back after the event.  When we got back the group started off and Armando and I decided to capture a few shots so we decided to bring up the back of the pack.  Well just about that time a fireworks display started downtown, probably for the Film Festival that was beginning that night, and so we were able to capture the skyline with fireworks!  You don’t have to wait until the 4th of July to experience fireworks!  I think luck was on our side Saturday evening.

Capture Notes:

  • Great capture. i love being surprised with fireworks!! The italians love their fireworks so you can imagine how frequent they are here. I have still never done a photowalk, but would love to when I get back to the states. Maybe I will organize one out here in Naples.

  • Great exposure Rick. Just the right amount of light and wonderful colors in the fireworks and tower
