4th of July in Central Illinois4th of July in Central IllinoisIn an attempt to get some Bloomington/Normal rireworks to celebrate 4th of July 2021, we went out looking for a fairly remote spot just outside of town. My idea was to try to get a more rural setting with a farm or pasture in the foreground. We pulled over on the rural road in front of Rader Family Farm, a place we have always taken the kids in the fall to check out pumpkins and enjoy fall games. Rader Pumpkin Patch has always been a fun time for our family every year (I'll include a link to their page below). When we pulled up, the red barn was just perfect but I didn't know if it would show up enough as the sun set. Within a few minutes the lights on the barn lit up as if to say, "no worries". The scene was perfect for a firework show. In the distance were the Fairview Park fireworks in Normal. With several images and some editing, this turned out better than anticipated.
