Fireworks show is spectacular

The grand finale of the National Fireworks Association Expo in Sioux Falls was a spectacular event Saturday night. I estimated the W.H. Lyons Fairgrounds grandstand was over half full and there were also many spectators in lawn chairs and sitting in their vehicles all around the fairgrounds.

I like to include some kind of foreground element in fireworks photos and had a bit of a tough time finding those in this setting, but it was fun to shoot nonetheless.

Hey Chad, the guy in the truck works with my wife! He really liked your picture.

I was watching from a grocery store parking lot while my wife was inside shopping, not as great of a view for me.

I think I scared the family in the truck when I walked up out of the dark and handed them a business card. But I did get a photo to them, so all should be okay now. :)
