The Fourth of July 2016 Balkowitsch Fireworks in Wet Plate

I have wanted to for some years to try and capture our family fireworks finale when we celebrate Independence Day.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  So I took my wet plate camera, gear and chemicals and had only one shot.  After checking the ground glass numerous times and making an educated guess of 45 seconds for the exposure, we were so happy with the results.
