    nice capture. now to aim it at the refinery and improve the background for next year ;)
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed ! Damn refineries and other industrial guff around there.

    Great shot!
    Allan, you'd probably find the chemical place behind it/close to the refinery would explode bigger than the refinery itself ;), but one would take out the other anyways, and our old factory was located in between the both of them ha

    Nice timing! Shooting at 30FPS again?
  • David de Groot said:
    Joel Sergent - Thanks Joel :) Plenty of things that would go bang around this area ;-)
    Not without reason too - it's quite loud. ;-) And I was even closer for todays shooting. (see note)
    Ummm, missed my battleship ;-)
    Nope, at the much harder to achieve, but full frame 3.9fps.
