Exploring the Canadian and American Sides of Niagara Falls from Land, Air and Water.
One of the big name destinations on our Down East Road Trip was our two-day, one-night trip to Niagara Falls. We had never been to Niagara – so everything proved a surprise to us – and while much of our stay was truly epic, truth be told, not all of the surprises were pleasant. The experienced proved a timely example of the good and bad things that come when a natural treasure such as Niagara Falls is not protected from commercialization.
Celebrating America’s Independence with the Firework’s Bang
After a warm summer day filled with hot dogs and watermelon, parades and performances; Americans gather together en mass along lakeside beaches, municipal sports fields and picturesque river fronts in anxious anticipation of the booming barrage to come. As the last tendrils of daylight blend into the growing blue-black expanse of twilight, a single, solitary flare blazes a vertical trail into the sky, signaling the start of the fireworks display.
With the 4th of July Weekend well underway for many, we thought what better way to celebrate ‘Merica than by offering up a collection of free HD wallpaper, taken from some of our favorite red, white and blue themed shoots from all around our fair land.

As you might expect, I try to never be too far away from my camera, even when on vacation. While carrying in a large camera bag and tripod into Disney isn’t exactly what you would call convenient, every time I’ve done so, I have been glad I did. As with any heavily attended event, trying to get the best spot for fireworks at Disney means coming early, so that’s what we did. after staking out my spot, I popped on my ND filter to experiment with some long exposures just as day was giving way to dusk – and the above image was one of my favorite results. Even though I’ve been doing this for well over a decade, I still really enjoy just playing with the camera!

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen and perhaps even taken your own photos of the evening fireworks at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Over the years, we’ve explored various locations to shoot this wonderful show – from the iconic images of the Castle from Main Street, to wide shots from the Polynesian Resort (you can download some of our favorite shots from previous visits here). This time, we took to the heights to shoot the fireworks from the Contemporary Resort. It proved to be a really great location!
I would be remiss if I did not mention what brought us to Orlando over the long weekend. If you’ve been following our blog for some time, you know that my wife an co-owner, Bryn, was diagnosed with breast cancer back in November of 2012. As you can imagine, the year has been filled with ups and downs as Bryn has gone through surgery, chemo and a seemingly unending stream of appointments and treatments over the past year. We are thankful that God allowed Bryn and the doctors to catch her cancer early – resulting in a good prognosis, even though she is so young. We have been blessed by wonderful doctors, nurses and technicians, a great hospital and support from not only our biological families, but also our neighbors and church family. Add to all of this, a wonderful gift from the Memories of Love organization – who sent us to Orlando to enjoy time with our family and explore Sea World and Universal Studios. It was a wonderfully renewing gift that we are so very thankful for.
As always, feel free to share, download and enjoy! All images are 1920 x 1080 pixels – perfect for 1080P HD wallpaper for your computer!
