Grand Finale Over The Lake
Photograph - Photography
This image was taken at Belews Lake, NC, during the their grand finale of their fireworks celebration show. The fireworks were reflected in the water and lit up all the boats that came out on the lake for the show. It was am amazing site to see and the reflection reminded me of all those that fought and are fighting for our freedom. It was a very moving moment and awesome to see. God Bless America. Taken with a Nikkor 55mm-300mm lens.
Independence Day is a national holiday marked by patriotic displays. Similar to other summer-themed events, Independence Day celebrations often take place outdoors. Independence Day is a federal holiday, so all non-essential federal institutions (like the postal service and federal courts) are closed on that day. Many politicians make it a point on this day to appear at a public event to praise the nation's heritage, laws, history, society, and people. Families often celebrate Independence Day by hosting or attending a picnic or barbecue and take advantage of the day off and, in some years, long weekend to gather with relatives. Decorations (e.g., streamers, balloons, and clothing) are generally colored red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. Parades are often in the morning, while fireworks displays occur in the evening at such places as parks, fairgrounds, or town squares.
