The fireworks begin at about 9:14pm and lasted until 9:38pm; the captured images are timestamped. The images were taken on the beach of Jekyll Island across the St. Simons Sound

Apart from the fireworks, the light from the St. Simons Lighthouse can be seen on the bottom right; the pier can also be seen, but its lights were turned off during the display.
