This video shows the three “USA” shell bursts and the grand finale of the fireworks show in Washington D.C. on July 4, 2013. (Kevin Ambrose)

The 2013 fireworks show in Washington, D.C. featured an assortment of new types of shell bursts compared to past year’s shows.  One of the crowd’s favorite this year was the “USA” shell bursts spelled out across the sky in quick succession.

I ran two cameras during the fireworks show, one for still images and one for video.  The still images appeared in an earlier post and displayed above is a video which contains two short clips that I shot during the show.  The first clip shows the three “USA” shell bursts and the second video clip is the grand finale.  As with past shows, it was a spectacular event.
