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

Part of us wants to say these are just ordinary people and not soldiers . . but, hey, that's what soldiers were. And are. Another convincing image.

@Ronnie 2¢: Absolutely correct, Ronnie ... but extra-ordinary for their service!

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

The power of the blast is felt on both sides of the cannon! Nicely captured Judy! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: ... and felt in the ground beneath our feet when close enough.

don from United States

A fine action shot of the cannon being fired. I suspect more guys should have covered their ears.

@don: You're probably correct, Don, and these people do this three days running at a number of 'battles' through the course of the year.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Perfect timing to capture this shot!! Their reactions speak volumes here!

Huh? Did you say something? I can't hear you.

@American Ferret: Ha, ha ... I couldn't hear from where I stood either!

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I bet in a battle the ground was shaking.

@B. Thomas: I'm sure it was.

je sens comme s'ils étaient devenus sourds à cause du canon

@L'angevine: Merci. ... Ils ne sont pas devenus sourds, mais tirant loin de se protéger.
