January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Fantastic image, Judy. Great timing to capture the smoke. They almost appear as toy soldiers and I like the red hats. This is a wonderful image of your series.

Love the smoke drifting up from the fired canons. The noise must have been something.

With the rising cannon smoke, this takes on such a great atmosphere of battle. A really terrific image, Judy, perfectly captured

I don't feel easy with this shot, are they Feds?

20 Feb 2009 10:02pm

@Thierry Masson: Please don't feel uneasy, Thierry. This is only a reenactment of a Civil War battle in the 1860's. It is acted out every January and is a wonderful history lesson just to visit. I've posted a number of different shots, which are in my portfolio if you want to see others.

Marion from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

cough, cough. Sometimes I just say the first thing that pops into my head. Again the authenticiy of the shot is great. Can tell that they are using the real thing.
