4th-of-July Photo Essay : “Everyday ‘Fire’ Works”

<  Original Post:  07.04.10  >

Friends have asked me if I plan to attend any of the many Fourth of July fireworks being offered.  My answer:  “No … I attend the most amazing ‘fire’ works displays every day. All I have to do is look up.”

Here is a sampling of recent “fire” works from my running Cycles-of-the-Seasons photo journal.  Happy Holiday.

How’s this for a “fire” works display?
Compliments of clouds and our beneficent sun.

You say you prefer more vibrant color?  . . .

In reviewing some recent imagery I had captured, the following image magnetized my imagination as having a “fireworks” overtone.

Experimenting with purposeful out-of-focus backlit trees at sunset  . . .
I see fireworks exploding in a night sky.

Or are we peering through a telescope?  . . .
Locating the “Heart Galaxy.”  (right of center)

As this Lens Upon the Clouds blog unfolds, there will be numerous image serials shared. More likely than not, I will conclude each photographic sojourn in the Heavens with an image tied to the Earth.  I find it of salutary importance to honor our Great Mother Earth and the “foothold” that she provides for our life journeys.

Back to Earth:
Behold the fire-light-from-within majesty of common weeds.
