Fire Ball!!! BOOM!!!

Fire Ball!!! BOOM!!!, originally uploaded by RMStringer.

I went with my friends to the shooting range today. They brought all their weapons with them and were ready to shoot some stuff up. I once again got to shoot most if not all of the guns and like last time, got to document all of this all the while trying to catch the elusive muzzle flash. It is much harder then one might think even with a fast camera, timing is EVERYTHING! After about 400 photos and 10 different guns, i hit PAY DIRT!! It was just perfect! Look at the flash!! A ball of FIRE out of his 1954 German made pistol shooting 7.62x25 cartridges. I got many photos with smoke and i saw many flashes but this is the ONLY fireball that was caught!! The range was way out in Goochland County north of I64 West. I have to thank my friends for all their time and letting me shoot with them, expecting nothing in return but my time and fun. They will be missed dearly when i move in another month...

Exposure: 0.033 sec (1/30)
Aperture: f/5.6
Focal Length: 70 mm
