Small Village Fireworks - Chama, New Mexico

Chama is a small village in Northern New Mexico and there is not a lot of money available. Our Village is the main sponsor and they try to get donations to help and I believe most everybody helps as much as they can. They use our small rodeo grounds and have a presentation by the AmVets and our council members and the mayor all do the speech thing. It does not last very long but what we got I think is pretty good.

In the summer during train season we have about 1100 folks who live here and then in the winter it gets down to around 500 of us that stays here.

My wife told at me "they are starting" so I grabbed the BushHawk with the camera and run across the street to try a few photos. I know I didn't follow the instructions from the folks that know what they are doing. Like everything else I do I let the camera make the decisions.

Spectacular, Roger. You, the Bigma, the K10D and the Bushmaster are quite the combo. Happy July 4th from a Canadian.

You did well Roger. I especially like image no 6 (the one that looks like Old Glory herself)! I have avoided the major firework displays recently on account of the crowds and how much time it takes to get out of the area. I would love to be in a small town to see decent fireworks without the aggravation! Jay

The camera did a good job making decisions. You did an outstanding job considering you weren't using a tripod! These are wonderful, and I envy you your small town fireworks.

Spectacular display and your flawless portrait
