Marshall Islands 35th Constitution day fireworks

 Marshall Islands 35th Constitution day fireworks show was pretty impressive.

A little background on the Marshall Islands:
Politically, the Marshall Islands is a presidential republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defence, funding grants, and some limited access to social services.  In 1979, the Government of the Marshall Islands was officially established and the country became self-governing.  In 1986, the Compact of Free Association with the United States entered into force, granting the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) its sovereignty.  
  I captured these photos with a 4 second exposure aboard LightSpeed.

 In this photo you can see the shore lights in the form of a nice sine wave as a passing boat wake rocked the boat.
 A nice show that lasted about 20 minutes.
