19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Rocket's Red Glare

While watching fireworks on July 4th, I noticed a full moon in the night sky. I took a picture as the fireworks exploded. They sparkled thru the trees giving a mystic glow next to the moon in the haze. Reminded me of the lyrics by Fracis Scott Key "...and the rockets' red glare..." & the celebration of freedom that fireworks symbolize.
