New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show


Greetings and Happy New Year,

Over the New Year’s break we rented a nice Chalet in Western Maryland for 5 days. It was a nice, much needed, get away and spending time with the family was all I could have asked for! Nestled in the woods with all of the modern amenities, the Chalet had two gas fireplaces, one upstairs and one down and classic chalet doors and windows facing west for watching sunsets. On New Year’s eve the park unveiled an awesome fireworks display over the lake. So at midnight the family all watched from the great windows and Zach and I stood on the balcony and captured the show 🙂

Best of Light,

  1. Great photos! My Fireworks photos usually come out blah! To many times the colors are washed out. Have to keep trying. Maybe by the 4th of July I’ll learn. Want good pictures all you need is practice. practice.practice.
