I shot alot of fireworks this summer. Along with July 4th in Orleans, I shot this set of the York Beach Fireworks over Short Sands Beach. Every year there has been a fireworks display scheduled for the first night of my trip. Every year it’s been postponed. Despite a massive, scary storm moving in hours before dusk, the fireworks display went off as scheduled. I scrambled down to the rocky shoreline and found a tall pillar of rock to shoot from. It gave me a vantage point looking out over the water and the coast but without any of the roads and other spectators in the shot. You can see the lights of the boardwalk area near Short Sands including the Funorama. If you’re interested in more shots from the York area, I spent a good deal of time at Nubble Lighthouse this summer.
