Evening & Night Sky Watch

 

 


I took these two photos on the the 4th of July. We were sitting on the Phenix City, Alabama ampitheatre side of the Chattahoochee River across from Columbus, GA awaiting the festivities to begin then the fireworks. I thought the evening one was a good one. Then I waited awhile and took the night shot which really looked awesome in the camera. It didn't look as good when I zoomed in it at work but looks better now. Hope it is not too dark here. The later was taken without flash.

Great catch for SWF! Mine's up too hope you can drop by,,, Happy weekend!

Catherine said...

Do you mean that both were taken at the same time? That's great pictures. My favorite is, like Dragonstar's advice, the dark one. It seems more festive!
Have a great week end.

Chatahoochee. That is just soooo much fun to say, isn't it?

I like the way the lights reflect off the water. Have a great weekend!
