It All Started at Wal-Mart- Day Two


Determined to Burn Them All, I spent a full half hour in the yard, trying to get 5 sparklers that I taped together to ALL burn at the same time.....  NO, the tape did not catch fire. Neither did I.


Did not happen, as you can see above, it burned one and even with all that fireworks, the others did not catch...

I just kept burning until they were all five burned out. To see just how awesome these were, click on photo for slide show view.


I set the Rebel on TV 1/125 and continuous fire mode and snapped my snapping self crazy.

The End of my Redneck Fireworks in my own back yard....but I did do something else while doing this... Coming soon to a blog near you.

Sandra, that is a scream, red neck fireworks....

GAL!!! these are awesome!!! I was going to ask you what you set your camera on but glad you posted it... how cool these turned out. Is that water in that pot? did you put it in there for a reason or is that from the rain?

OUTstanding photos~~

Number four and the last two are my FAVE!!! You DID it!! And they are very pretty. One thing I love about these is when the little star shaped sparks fly off and they look like you made stars in mid-air! Looking forward to seeing what else you did, hope you didn't burn your woods down!

You captured some marvelous photos of your fireworks display, even if you couldn't get all five of them to go at once. Have a marvelous Fourth -- we're having a wet one.

MOL MOL MOL MS....
In my professional opinion Wally World should either give you a discount or pay you as a spokeslady.
Of course we are prejudice.

I think you're a pyromaniac at heart - always trying to get something to burn!

I like them. I wish I would have gone out and played with some sparklers and my camera.
Can't wait to see what else you did

Glad you are a "Sparkle Lady"......Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July... God Bless America.

We had rain all day --but we still enjoyed our BBQ and watermelon!!!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

Now I'm wondering if maybe it was the humidity that made them so hard to light?
Your hard work paid off with lots of pretty sparkles however, I love the sparks.
Happy Fourth of July!

Terri said...

Nice shots- I love the effects.

Grenville was going to get some of these at our local Walmart and wish he had cause it would have been fun setting them off. We have a large back yard and no house nearby and of course we would have invited you to snap away, Sandra. Looks like a fun photo shoot!
