Americans celebrated the 4th of July by releasing fireworks into the night sky — and taking copious photos and videos of the colourful explosions.
Greene’s video is so fun to watch, in fact, that it’s now going viral despite being a year old.
Green explained on Reddit that he shot the 800-frame time-lapse over the course of an hour using a free photo-editing program called Starstax. To get a full view of the fireworks, he situated his camera on the 715-foot-tall Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, located west of downtown LA.
Other photographers experimented with using cameras attached to drones to take photography of fireworks this year.
