July 4th Fireworks, Estes Park, CO
Living in AZ - July 4th is not fun in the heat. So we like to escape to Estes Park and hike and watch these beautiful fireworks over the lake in a wonderful cool evening. One of the best displays I have ever seen...and photographed!
I Love pelicans. Even though they are not graceful, they are beautiful. Was able to get some great pelican shots at this little park in Sarasota, FL near our hotel.
