Spark trails from cannon blast captured at the Moorpark Civil War Reenactment- National Geographic Photo Contest 2011
Sparks trail from cannon blast captured at the Moorpark Civil War reenactment, sponsored by the Moorpark Rotary Club. Soldiers manning the cannon were silhouetted due to a large light behind them shining down on the battlefield. The large flood light made it possible to also see the smoke from the cannon blasts.
