Fireworks in the Rain

Skyfire 2012

 

July 4th – the day for fireworks in the USA – and everyone has their camera out.

The problem for a photographer is that no matter how great your photos turn out, every shot you have has been done before and there’ll always be a better photo than yours.

So this year, despite attending one of the most spectacular firework displays in the country, I decided to turn the camera around and focus on the watchers and other elements of the scene that were transformed by the fireworks.

The one element I never anticipated? Pouring rain!

As the show drew to a close I decided to beat the crowds and head for the train station. As I walked away the finale exploded behind me and I turned and took this image of the amazing light-filled sky reflected in the rain-pocked puddle.
