Boom!

This was quite loud. Ironic that I managed to get muzzle flash using the 5DII, but when I tried the same canon later with the 1DIV, I missed the flash.

Quite tricky getting these muzzle flashes which occur in a timeframe much less than 1/30 sec.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/teejaybee] Turned out ok really. Always a bit tricky with the lighting at outdoor events.
