A couple of days ago I went with some friends to see the fireworks display at Sleepy Hollow Country Club. Despite its name the club is actually in Briarcliff Manor, not Sleepy Hollow.

I’m not really fond of fireworks displays. My view is pretty much that “once you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all”. Also, I once watched a fireworks display from a boat in New York Bay. It was really incredible, and I suspect that a display in Briarcliff Manor would not surpass that.

Anyway, last year my friends persuaded me to go with them to the same display. It was really quite special. The fireworks are let off well away from the Sleepy Hollow Country Club. This is very close to where we were in the St. Mary’s Church parking lot. From this position it felt like they were exploding right over our heads. Unfortunately, last year I didn’t take a camera. This time I did.

Taken with a Sony A77II and Tamron 18-250mm f3.4-6.3. I haven’t used this camera for some time, but it was the only reasonable modern camera for which I had a remote.
