tomorrow is the start of the long Fourth of July weekend here in the States
we will be enjoying our local parade and fireworks
as the weather is supposed to be very HOT!
I’ll be taking a breather
but will return on Monday
may The Fourth be with you!
HAPPY WEEKEND ALL!

As always, your use of colors and shape amaze me. Nice work, LMA
Thank you so much!
Have a happy holiday weekend my friend! 🙂
Thanks Carol, we did! Hope you enjoyed your holiday and I’m hoping that we all get some nice cool weather soon!
Hope you guys had a nice long weekend!
This is a time for me to stay away from the beach. I’m just hoping it manages to cool off some. Enjoy your breather…..
Well, we never did make it to the beach, which is just as well. I love swimming in the ocean on a hot day but just didn’t feel like battling the crowds on the sand! We ended up heading to the Berkshires instead…and there was a nice breeze out there!
Hope you have an enjoyable long Independence Weekend.
Thank you, hope you had a safe and happy holiday weekend!
Happy 4th Susan! Have a fabulous weekend! Robyn
Thank you Robyn, it was a nice long weekend…hope yours was too!
I love this photo. You captured the experience of being on a crowded beach perfectly. Did you do it with aperture or Photoshop?
Thanks Pat, I was just playing around with it although I’m still not happy with the way it came out. Unfortunately, I don’t have photoshop but was just using an online photo editor called Pixlr. Someday, I’ll probably break down and get Photoshop…but I need a new computer first!
I’m not familiar with Pixir – I use Lightroom and have been very happy with it.
I’ve heard really good things about Lightroom. I’ll probably look into that when I finally buy a new computer!
I think you can get a free download trial for a period of time. They know you will be hooked and want to buy it. It is a lot less expensive than Photoshop.
Thanks…I’ll have to look into that.
Be safe…and use your sunscreen and big floppy hat…..
Yes, good advice Scott! We never actually made it to the beach but headed west to the Berkshires…but I was well equipped with hat, sunscreen, bug spray…it’s been very hot and humid here!
I was just reading in the news about your east-coast weather last night…sounds very unpleasant…and very unhealthy, also. I hope the heat wave passes soon….
Yes, it’s been a bit uncomfortable to say the least! I’ve only go out in short spurts. I heard that it’s supposed to break on Sunday…I can only hope! Can’t wait to open all my windows and let some fresh air in!
I like the way you did the beach shot.
Thank you…I was just playing around with it. Not sure it’s what I intended though…
Happy 4th of July! I’m going to try taking photos of the fireworks tomorrow with my new camera. I’ve never succeeded so it’s worth the try again.
Hope you had fun with your new camera…how exciting! I’ve had many failures with fireworks…kind of hit or miss with me!
I did great! Here are a few photos I posted just the other day. I have way more to share when I find the time.
WOW! You certainly did, those are magnificent images! I follow your blog but for some reason your posts have not been showing up on my reader…wonder why that is? Seems I have a lot of catching up to do now!
I don’t understand how WordPress does it. I subscribe to blogs by email and then never get notification until I subscribe again. Go figure!
I try to follow only through the reader because I hate clogging up my emails…but I may have to resort to subscribing to some.
Wonderful pictures! I hope you’re enjoying the fourth!
Had a great 4th and I hope you did as well Liz!
Indeed, may the 4th be with you.
Hope you had a nice long weekend Charlie!
Hope you’re having a wonderful 4th of July weekend, Susan.
It’s really hot here in NY, but I hear it’s hotter there! 🙂
Had a wonderful long weekend and I hope you did too Lisa! Yes, still hot here!
Great fireworks captures ! And the beach scene, love what you did with it.
Your colors always grab me immediately – the fireworks are stunning!
Thank you Theresa!
These are amazing!! You did a fantastic job 😀
