Six-Years Ago (28-June-2012) — New Jersey

Montgomery Township New Jersey Independence Day Fireworks.

Montgomery Township in New Jersey typically has an Independence Day fireworks celebration several days before the 4th of July. Like this year it was almost a week earlier. I have a great location near my house that has a view that is above the high school where the fireworks are launched. This was the first time I was able to use the new high-resolution Nikon D800 to photograph a fireworks display. In all I had five cameras set up to record the event. Individual images can be viewed here.
