4th of July fireworks in Crisfield

"Everything is created from moment to moment, always new. Like fireworks, this universe is a celebration and you are the spectator contemplating the eternal Fourth of July of your absolute splendor." ~ Francis Lucille



This past weekend, we celebrated the 4th in style with some beautiful fireworks, courtesy of the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce and Somers Cove Marina.


Thanks to Kathleen at Captain's Galley Condominiums for convincing me to shoot atop the condos. The view was awesome! That is Somers Cove Marina in the background.


The Crisfield city dock was filled up with spectators.

A view of Glenwood Evans Seafood, after hours, of course. It is a bustling place during working hours.




















































I love this view with the crab shanties off in the distance. For you photographers out there, this photo, Glenwood Evans, and the city dock were hand-held shots using a 17- 35 2.8 Nikon lens.

Want a view like this? Drop in at the Captain's Galley Prudential office and see Kathleen, or give her a call at 410.968.3333. She can also help you with condo seasonal rentals.

Thanks to Kathleen, right, and Butch, not shown, for always making sure I have a parking space.

Great job, Chamber and Somers Cove!

GingerV: Yes, I felt guilty about not showing off our 4th photos. I was busy, but went for it!

OMGosh Patty....That was the most amazing Fireworks Show I've ever seen. Not only Spectacular Fireworks, but super shots from the top of the condo. Thanks for sharing.
