Fort Lytton Cannon Firing

We took a trip out to Fort Lytton today for a Cannon firing day. First time the 1DX has been here with the big cannons, and as you can see, it performed admirably.

    Fantastic shot, Dave. Love the cowering gunner, too. :-)

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/ross_m] Quite!
    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/dazza-g] Aye, the whole gun crew cower down when it goes off. Always a good idea with a cannon this old, but then they're only setting off 1kg of black powder, instead of the original 5kg and 64lb shell.
