The video is my first experiment with combining video, stills and outside music. Hope you enjoy.
The weather was a little humid for Waukesha's 2010 fireworks, but the breeze kept us cool and mosquitoes away.
An unusual night. Light rain began to fall at the very start of the action and ended just as the show concluded. The raindrops cooled us without soaking us. The rain could've fallen by chance, or the thousands of explosions could've dislodged the high moisture content in the air. Don't know. Doesn't matter, as long as the camera didn't get too wet.
I swear these shows get better every year. There's really something to be said for being right there under the rockets at the Expo Center. At times the sky was totally engulfed in flares. The bursting explosions doubled with the echoes bouncing off nearby hills and trees.
