Fireboat on the Hudson

This fireboat on the Hudson was shot from the Steven's Institute of Technology Campus in Hoboken on July 4, 2009. We went there to see the Macy's Fireworks on the Hudson. We hadn't planned on going but decided to hop the train and go. I really wasn't planning on getting too many images. I was tired from the long day and thought I would probably just people watch if I were to take any images at all. We found this grassy spot on the hill to be much less crowded and more comfortable than some of the other locations on the promenade and pier which afforded better views. We did get a great view of the fireworks although not the best spot to photograph them. Despite a utility pole, a lamppost, and a tree in the field of view and the fact that I forgot my remote, I did get some images of the fireworks that I have loaded into a slideshow which you can see here.

For a much larger more detailed view go here.
