Canons firing...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 20 February 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

...and I was thrilled to catch the fire. This may be my favorite shot of the whole batch.

Have a blessed Sunday, everyone!

DSLR-A100 1/320 second F/5.6 ISO 100 100 mm

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.

The bellowing of the smoke and fire out of the canon is quite spectacular.
Looking at the posture and stance of each soldier adds to the story.
In some ways they look like miniature soldiers.
Exceptional series, Judy.
