4th of July fireworks from Mount Pleasant

Local photographer Joseph Nienstedt journeyed out to the Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park to catch a view of the fireworks over the USS Yorktown.

Nienstedt writes about the show:

I know from history that any family event in Mount Pleasant is always over-populated. If I was going to catch the fireworks over the U.S.S. Yorktown, Waterfront Park in Mount Pleasant has the best view, but also the most people. I was going to take a chance anyway since it was also the closest. I found a relatively people-free spot right on the marshy banks of the Cooper river. The stars had aligned and I was able to capture these.
