Foster City Independence Day 2013 (Long Exposures and Sunset Part 2)

Independence Day, or Fourth of July, is a federal holiday where Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence in July 4th, 1776 which declared the US independence from Great Britain. Many Americans (and non-Americans) celebrate by shooting off and watching fireworks, having barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, political speeches, and many other activities. I spent the 2013 4th of July in Leo Ryan Park at Foster City, CA. I took photos of the fireworks, the event, and some scenery. I will be splitting the photos of this event into several blog posts. If you would like to see 2012 (last year) fireworks show in Foster City, you can check it out here.

Today I have the rest of the long exposure and sunset shots from the event.

Sunset over Foster City, CA.  

A wider shot of the sunset with the people waiting for the fireworks also in the shot.  

 Since the sun was down, I was able to do long exposure without an ND filter. Here is a long exposure of the sunset and Central Lake. 


Another few photos of sunset over Foster City, CA.  

 Since the sun was down, I was able to do a few long exposures without an ND filter. Here are two long exposures of the sunset and the people waiting around for the fireworks. 

These are all the photos for today and from the event. I hope you have enjoyed this chain of blog posts. Next time I will continue with my Pier 39 photos, where I left off before 4th of July.
