About dusk on the Fourth of July, we drove down to the Meyer Ranch near Helmville to take in the fireworks show. I'd never been to this event, but one of my neighbors described it as "The best fireworks display this side of St. Louis." That's quite a claim! I've been meaning to go for several years, but each time something has come up and I didn't get to go. But this time we made it, and we weren't disappointed.
It took me most of the show to get my camera figured out. If you don't have the exposure right, it comes out looking like a night sky with a lot of colored stars...
