Just wanted to thank you for this awesome pic. Used it as one of the images appearing in our company 2007 calendar that we sent to our clients. I modified it in Photoshop to create emboss/imprint personalised names on it. Thanks a lot and hope more and more people can benefit from this awesome but good quality freebie photo collection. Kudos to you!

Used your photo as the background for my birthday invitations - reversed the colours to save ink and allow overprinting. Thanks!

Used your photo on my blog, http://ariztravel.com/2008/06/21/arizona-fourth-of-july-events/

Hi, thanks for the use of your photo. I am in Chicago and we have a big fireworks display here on July 3. Sadly, my students and I will be in class and will have to miss them. So, I printed out your photo to put up in the classroom to lift their spirits! Thank you!
