January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Wonderful. I bet they needed ear plugs to shoot that thing!

21 Feb 2011 5:13pm

@B. Thomas: I didn't see any ear plugs, but they certainly would cover their ears and turn their heads!

Barbara from Florida, United States

Excellent, Judy! I like the composition of the soldiers standing at the canon and the faint appearance of the soldiers through the cloud of smoke.
I've really enjoyed your photography in this series.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb ... looking at the photos, I can bring it all back as if it were yesterday. Glad you enjoyed the shots.

Tim from Ft. Worth, United States

nice catch! it is harder than one thinks to get good artillery shots :)

23 Feb 2011 10:46pm

@Tim: I was just so tickled to get the canon firing in last Sunday's shot. ;D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

The group around the canon is very well would make a fine painting! I'm a little disturbed by the view in the far background, through the smoke, of those men ambling at ease....The two don't work so well..or so it seems to me....

@Japanalia: I'm glad you enjoyed the men in the foreground. The line in the background were moving the canon farther to the north on the field. Because the field is flat and there are no trees for cover, a bit of imagination has to be inserted.
