So years ago my brother in law gifted me a big pack of mini bottle rockets that have been sitting around gathering dust. Tonight, on Christmas Eve, it seemed a good time to burn a few of them off, since it was a clear, cool night out here in the country. Besides, a week ago some neighbor further up the road had apparently been to the mid west, as he was shooting off major quality fireworks with a mortar. My little rockets were pip squeaks in comparison.
So, after the Christmas Eve Jul Bord, and presents, me and the two youngest kids wandered onto the deck to see what would happen when a match and fireworks were combined. Not exactly classic Christmas entertainment, unless you live at my house, but still fun. Naturally, the teenagers loved it.
Here are the long exposures. The star like dots about the sparks are the little rockets detonating with a nice sharp crack.
Ok, back to the egg nog....
