July 4th Fireworks ~ Frankfort, Michigan 2014

I’m so excited to share these images from our traditional trip to the July 4th Fireworks in Frankfort Michigan!  Although I am primarily a portrait photographer I started out in landscape photography and still return to my roots in photography often.  On this great evening I was treated to a gorgeous Lake Michigan sunset before a spectacular fireworks display.  I’ve shot fireworks a few times but after reading an article (I’m ALWAYS reading up on photography) I decided to try longer exposures this time.  I love the results and I hope you do too.  These images are also for sale at the Fireworks gallery here on my website.  I’ve got a lot of nature images from the UP, Pictured Rocks, Empire Bluffs, Pyramid Point, and more to add there as well.  Contact me at info@partoflifephotography.com for information on prints, canvases, metal prints, wood mounts and more!

I’d love to hear your comments so feel free to post below.  You can also share a link to this blog post!

For those that are interested I shot these with a Canon 5D Mark III, 24-70mm 2.8 L at f/16, ISO 100 – 200 with shutter speeds between 2.5sec and 5 seconds.  Here is one of the fireworks articles I read.  Have fun shooting!

Quite a show by Mother Nature!

Then an amazing show sponsored by the Frankfort – Elberta Chamber of Commerce!  You can see the Frankfort Lighthouse here, as well as the end of the breakwater in Elberta with the purple firework in this image.
