A few days ago I got an email asking me to promote the Bethany Volunteer Fire Department’s annual fireworks show. No problem. And, since it isn’t far from home, I figured I’d go and snap some photos.
Bethany is a small community, straddling Route 63, north of New Haven. I have heard that there are more horses than people in Bethany – though that’s probably untrue. I do know their zoning makes for large lots and plenty of room if you’d like a stable.
The fireworks were scheduled to be held at Bethany Airport. Bethany was actually the first airport in Connecticut, established back in 1922, but it hasn’t been used that way for a very long time and the neighbors probably like it that way!
I haven’t taken too many fireworks pictures in the past, so this was a total experiment. I’m not exactly sure what I did wrong, but I’m not very satisfied with the results. Of course there are always some good shots. Here are four of my favorites.
