      It’s an animated gif; I made it in Photoshop.

        Thanks, I just got CS6 but have no idea how to use Photoshop beyond the basics. Glad to know there’s one more really cool thing I can do with PS if I just learn how to figure out how to use it!

    Such perfect pictures! They really sum up the feeling of excitement about fireworks! And I had those same exact binoculars as a kiddo 25 years ago. Glad to see some things don’t go out of style. :)

      Well, they may be that old! The family cabin has been in Brandon’s family for decades, and those are probably his binoculars from when he was a kid.
