As fireworks blast into the sky, a stand in for the Army mule hangs from a scaffold above the bonfire at the Naval Academy, surrounded by a crowd of midshipmen. The annual tradition occurs two days before the Army-Navy football game. It was cold, and then it was very hot, too hot. Another nice compression shot, another nice exposure. It's funny, you really do get an instinct about exposure, I'd heard of it but never thought it would happen to me. Here I exposed for flames, highlight details, and fireworks. Of course, I should've used a fill flash to show the faces of the cheering midshipmen as well. Next year.
