Disney's 4th of July Concert in the Sky

Happy Fourth of July!

The Walt Disney World Resort is known for its Fireworks.  The two best times of year to see them are New Years Eve and the Fourth of July.  This year was seemed to take it to an entirely different level.

More photos and the finale after the break....

Nature's Fireworks....

Well.... while waiting for fireworks high above the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon, myself and my compatriots found ourselves setting up to photograph at the tail end of a thunderstorm only to find some seriously impressive lightning.  I covered the lens quickly as I was hoping to incorporate fireworks in the shot as it was minutes before the scheduled start of the show.... which was delayed an hour and a half.

(Authors Note/disclaimer:  Photographing lightning from the roof of any building is rather foolish and should not be attempted.  Always be mindful of your surroundings and photograph lightning from safe areas)
