July 365 Challenge: 7/4 Fireworks

It goes without saying, that I need a lot of practice on this technique! I broke rule #1, and had no tripod. I also did not have my SLR camera, another booboo. But the fireworks were beautiful.

Happy Birthday, America!

Horses enjoying the surf on Assateague Island in Maryland. This was on the beach at the State Park. There was a herd of about 8 horses. They were almost asleep standing in the water. Such a beautiful and peaceful beach! Just don't bring food. :)
