Happy 4th of July 2011! After enjoying the sun with some friends at Lake Sammamish, I ended up watching the Gasworks/Lake Union Fireworks show from the rooftop deck of an apartment building in Wallingford. It was an interesting view! I was at a higher elevation than previous years (see the blog entry *here* for comparison), so some of the lower explosions are hidden behind some trees, but the silhouetted trees at the bottom does provide an interesting aesthetic change from previous years.
As a technical note, the large shot with the three purple fireworks was photoshopped a little. I moved the fireworks to a different point in the sky and brightened the city. Everything else is shown pretty much the way it was shot. Enjoy.
