Lens on Lake Minnetonka: Whizz Bang

Taking a photo that re-creates the beauty of a fireworks show is difficult.

Minnetrista photographer John Haug says the more you practice and experiment, the better. Haug took his award-winning photo, “Sound and Light Show,” last year at Surfside Park during the Spirit of the Lakes Festival in Mound. He used his Canon 7d camera. The snapshot took first place in the Activities & Events category of our 2015 Lens on Lake Minnetonka photo contest.

“I find it kind of fun to just try to get the action and the fireworks,” he says. “Anyway, it turned out quite well.”
