This Timelapse Shows Thousands of Fireworks Exploding Across L.A.

While most photographers captured this year’s July 4th fireworks from below, Los Angeles-based photographer Aaron Keigher decided to find a different vantage point. He ventured up Mount Wilson, which rises over 5,000 feet above LA and create this dazzling time-lapse showing fireworks exploding across the landscape.

Keigher titled the film “The Battle of Los Angeles.”

“There must have been thousands upon thousands of fire works going off,” he writes. “Between the various shows cities and stadiums put on and the thousands of backyard shows put on by your local pyromaniac, it looked like a war zone!”
