It was Handcart Days in Bountiful, celebrating the arrival of some of the immigration groups from the east (many from Europe) who could not afford wagons and teams but pulled handcarts instead. Celebrated in Utah on the 24th, the fireworks were held locally last night (the 20th). Having staked out my viewing spot, I waited about an hour for darkness and was treated to some wonderful clouds looking out to Antelope Island. That is roughly the view from my house--or would be if I knocked down the house to the west of me plus a few trees!!

I tried shooting the fireworks last year and made a mess of it. Better results this time. Shot at 64 ISO on bulb and dead reckoning on the length of exposure. Just opened the shutter when I saw a rocket headed up and let the fireworks paint the sensor.

And we think we have it tough when the electricity goes out for an hour. Just think of it. Pulling a handcart 2000 miles for a shot at the American Dream. God bless the pioneers.

Very nice work, but remember to not make Utah look good, we have too many people coming in already!
