Our community is very thankful  to the Donors, Roni Stanton and the Mason Valley Fireworks Committee for an amazing and explosive fireworks show to cap off our hometown 4th of July! Thank you to local Photojournalist Jim Benterou for the memorable collages of Mason Valley’s 2024 Fourth of July Show!


For Jim Benterou, photography has always been a very personal endeavor. He isn’t interested in selling prints or entering competitions. He does it out of a passion and a never-ending pursuit of excellence.

 Jim’s favorite subjects are astro-photography and landscapes…When asked what his best image is Jim Benterou replied, “The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”
