Jacksonville Thanksgiving Fireworks Display 2014

 Jacksonville puts on the best fireworks display ever, and especially the Thanksgiving weekend fireworks display is the one that takes the cake. The fourth of July is tame compared to Turkey Weekend in River City.

 It’s hard to believe that we have lived here 6 years already, but we have–and for 6 years we have watched the fireworks explode outside hubby’s sky rise office window and we have watched the pyrotechnics set the downtown bridges on fire. This year I had a camera that could shoot on a bulb setting, so I placed that baby on a tripod and thought I could make the magic happen.

Sadly, firework photography is harder than I thought it would be! My bridge shots were all really blurry!

 No matter how many times I’ve seen it, I still think it’s pretty cool to have the fireworks launched from the river barges.

 I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend with many, many blessings and much to be thankful for! I love the holidays and am so looking forward to this new month leading up to Christmas and New Years.
