Night Events

While traveling back from Canada, we stopped to visit our daughter and her husband in Montross, Virginia. Because of generally low light pollution at their place, which is on the water, we have been able to get nice night-time pictures, like this moon shot below:

So, on this trip, we got to watch some fireworks on the 4th, sitting at the edge of the Potomac, watching thousands of dollars go up, literally, in smoke and flames as people on both sides of this great river fired off their rockets.

And then they were done. We returned home to their place and I was dazzled by the night sky, and the visible stars that we rarely see at home because of light pollution.  So I ventured to take a few simple time exposures, pointing the camera skyward.
