This is a pic i took about two weeks ago of my friend firing his blackpowder rifle.
It is a replica of the blackpowder rifles used in the 1750-1800 eras.
I took the pic one evening when we where doing some target shooting.
It took a 10 second exposure, with a very small aperature to capture the picture correct. Unfortunately i forgot my tripod so there is some blur, but
the overall pic, i think, is rather amazing!!
Look at how close the explosion is to the shooters face, amazing, and all the little pieces flying everywhere is from the blackpowder igniting and
burning in all directions.
