Boom ! A civil war canon firing demonstration by re-enactors at Gettysburg's National Battlefield. I arrived at the demonstration area across from the Pennsylvania Monument just in time for the firing and quickly setup the shot knowing I would crop off the top and bottom portions of the frame leaving a panoramic view. What I had not anticipated was how much the ground would shake when the canon went off which led to a slight bit of camera shake. Wow those things are loud !
