How to photograph fireworks

Yesterday the stats counter at Google Analytics which keeps track of visitors  to this blog reported that it had received its One Millionth Visitor. OK, I know there are a lot websites that would dwarf the popularity of this one but consider this. When I started this blog about five years ago, I had 15 visitors for all of the first week.

Snowy Owl

Initially my posts were about birds and to date I have done about 400 posts on birds.The most popular post on birds has been the Snowy Owl above which has had more than 10,000 visits.

Gradually I added a few more of my interests (obsessions?). Covered bridges was one of them and a post on Everett Covered Bridge in Ohio became the most visited in a single day with 9,700 people accessing it one day after it was featured on Stumbleupon.

Its been a lot of fun putting out something every day whether its about birds, Covered bridges, Waterfalls or photoshop tutorials. My thanks to everyone who have come to have a look.

  1. Count me in as a silent visitor to your blog. I leave comments very seldom. I love your photos of covered bridges and old mills. Keep on clicking and keep on blogging.

  2. Harold,
    Congratulations on a blog well done!

    With such great photography and videography, you have really created a wonderful site here.

    I recall finding this site by doing a google search for a dark morph rough legged hawk. You had a wonderful video that helped me confirm what I saw.

    Congrats again and keep up the great work!
