    Fourth of July in San Diego

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Scott Murphy took these stunning photos of fireworks over San Diego's downtown skyline in 2011. He normally spends the 4th of July holiday in San Diego, photographing the fireworks.

    "It's one of the few times in the year when everybody stops, looks up and appreciates how beautiful San Diego is with fireworks going off over the bay," he says.

    In 2012 however, Scott wasn't able to photograph the firework show, much to his disappointment. But then something happened. "It was the infamous firework show bust, where a technical fault caused all the fireworks to explode at the same time, so within 15 seconds the whole show was over," he recalls. "Everyone was very upset, secretly I was happy because it wouldn't have mattered if I was there or not."

    This year he'll be ready for the fireworks show again with his camera.
