4th of July Fireworks New Bern Style

It didn’t rain on Saturday night, so New Bern went ahead with their fireworks display to celebrate our Nation 244 Independence.  I went to Lawson Creek Park in New Bern.  There is a Blue Angels jet on display at the park.  As a matter of fact,  the Marine Corps and Navy have several jets and helicopters on display between New Bern and Havelock.  Havelock is the home of the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point.

I used my Nikon D7500 camera with the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm | 1.8 G for the fireworks photographs.  I had my ISO set to 200, and Aperture to f/11.  Some people suggest f/16, but a Nikon article stated f/11.  I used a remote shutter and place my shutter to “Bulb” mode, therefore the shutter speed will vary.
