Santa Barbara's 4th of July Fireworks

Santa Barbara’s 4th of July Fireworks

Jul 05, 2008

Happy 4th: 

I submitted this photo taken on 7/4/08 of Santa Barbara’s Stearns Warf and the surrounding area to Budget Travel Magazine and they published it in their July 10, 2008 edition of Budget Travel Online.  Go directly to the page with my picture via the following web address and see the other 16 photos that made it into their Best of Gallery.  Budget Travel Firework Slide Show

On this night, there was an extremely high tide and the waves actually came over the top of the normal sand embankment and covering the flat sand on the beach.  To get these shots, which show the reflection of both the ocean and the water on the beach, I stood at the top of the sand embankment.  Often the waves would flow around my feet and tripod but the resulting pictures were worth wet feet.
