FIRE!!!



Yesterday I posted the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drums as they performed during a military review in Williamsburg. Another feature of the review was the firing of a Revolutionary War-era cannon. The gun crew went through all the steps involved in loading and priming the cannon. When the command to 'Fire!' was given, this was the result.

Great photo but I didn't hear the loud "boom." ;-)

This photo is a success. The gun fire must have been enjoyable, I guess.
