Photo Thursday: What I Expected my 4th of July Photos Would Look Like, Apostle Islands, Wisconsin

I had the great pleasure of celebrating the 4th of July on a sailboat on Lake Superior.

A calm morning led to a light wind and pleasant sailing into the harbor at La Pointe, Wisconsin. We slid into the harbor in mid-afternoon, giving us plenty of time to settle in and wait for the evening fireworks display. I spent much of that time sitting on deck enjoying the activity around me as the boat bobbed and turned in the breeze and the wake from the other boats moving around the harbor. It’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon, but it also gave me plenty of time to wonder how to photograph those fireworks.
