14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Bursting along the river

The firework show in Charleston, WV is not at big as some cities, but I argue that is more beautiful thanks to the river and mountains. This was one of the first couple fireworks that launched because it got too dark and smoky shortly after I took this image. I also really like how everyone brings their boats out and hangs out in the Kanawha River to watch the celebrations.
