Nice timing, although I bet getting one of the shell just as it emerges from the barrel would be even harder, this must have taken you either ages to get or you were just very lucky Wink

Hi all,

Thanks for the comments. Yes it did take quite a while to get the shot (excuse the pun), but they did fire in excess of 200 shells so I had a few opportunities. And yes, the golden carrot would have been the shell leaving the barrel but I just couldn't get a fast enough shutter speed on the day. Maybe next time... haha.
