John Cooper will appreciate this photo. Ginny took this one. This is a 1795 Sprigfield musket replica. What is interesting is that Ginny got the powder flash. You will note that sparks are going everywhere. Our requirement is the shooter wears glasses, for good reason. Anyone who has been around flintlocks will know that you get a good smoke cloud from the pan flash. You never really see the actual flash of the powder, it is all smoke. Great shot Ginny!!

Canon PowerShot S70
1/60s f/5.0 at 17.5mm full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Oh yes I do appreciate this photo. Normally you will take hundreds of photos on motor drive to get one like this. Very good shot.
