The first shot was taken with the 12/24 F4. The rest with the 200/400 W/ TC 1.4, handheld at F5.6
These pics were taken at Clinton Georgia's War days. The battle of Sunshine Church and Griswoldville are re-enacted.
It has become obvious that the sun does not like my 200/400 for when I am well enough to handle the lens, the sun will not come out!!!
I have a post of the battle scenes in the miscellaneous forum, most taken with the 200/400 an a few with the 70/200.

C&C more than welcome!!

Cannon With Primer. Handheld at F5.6

The primer punches a hole in the prepared charge, exposing the powder.

Placing The Fuse

The fuse is a friction device, similar to a match, and is set off by pulling the rope.
