Charleston Regatta fireworks

Charleston's Sternwheel Regatta ended last Sunday with the usual fireworks on the river. I was actually impressed with this year's display, which is typically several degrees larger than the one on the 4th of July anyway. From what I could tell, the shells were launched from three flatbed trailers on MacCorkle Avenue rather than the usual barges on the river.

Charleston's fireworks are always in difficult/impossible locations for good downtown skyline photo compositions, most of the time being at or east of the South Side Bridge. A private parking garage would have yielded the only way to get this year's regatta display in with downtown. I took the easy route and just walked up on the ridge behind my house to get this angle. There is not much that one can do to get a variety of compositions from this vantage point, so there's just the one here. The link above goes to a Flash slideshow of a few shots.
