Fireworks On The Savannah

Launched off the Fifth Street Bridge, over the Savannah River, entering Augusta, Georgia is a Fourth of July tradition.

Our daughter captured some of the display with her camera.

These kind of look like something under a microscope in  microbiology class!

She took some wonderful shots. We had so much fun at the fireworks show and so did the other ten thousand souls who were there!
Happy Fourth of July

We know freedom is not free and we thank all those in the military past and present. God bless you all for your service to our country.

grace surrounds us

  6. Hi Olive. Those were some great shots of the fireworks that your daughter captured for us to see! I so agree with you that we should be thankful for all the servicemen and women who put their lives at risks for the safety of their countries. Wishing you and your little family a very happy 4th July!

  7. Ah, yes, microbiology -- OR a big funky Dahlia!

    Fantastic fireworks, captured so nicely by your daughter. Good work!

  8. Olive,
    We didn't see any fireworks, so I am enjoying yours! They are all beautiful, and the first one is really special. Kudos to C.C.!

  11. Wow she really got some great shots! I attempted to take some but they did not turn out like these beauties!


  12. Beautiful photos! I love watching fireworks. We live in a small town with a big 4th of July celebration. We like to go to the end of our road that is high on a hill and watch the spectacular fireworks. One of my favorite things to do! I LOVE Savannah! from Augusta to Charleston..just beautiful

  13. Actually I thought the first shot looked like creamy colored Chrysanthemums or some other flower of that type.

  14. I love the photos!! We went to our river front in peoria, Il. and watched the fireworks...I just LOVE them...they make me feel like a 10 year old every time i see them..i just love that feeling...thanks for sharing...

  15. Your daughter is very good. Lovely shots!

  16. Your daughter did a great job of capturing the fireworks, those are not easy shots!!

  17. Beautiful pictures Olive! That first one had me fooled, it looks like some kind of underwater plant to me. Ann

  18. Great shots! I am totally challenged in taking fireworks photos. I took probably 60 shots and I think there is one that maybe is keepable.


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
