September 2014 Calendar

It's that time again... time to prepare for chillier weather, back to school, autumn colors and the changing of the seasons. Your calendar this month comes from a recent weekend get-a-way that Heidi and I took to visit Gettysburg Battlefield during Labor Day weekend. I was lucky to snap this picture as I had no idea that any weapons demonstrations were scheduled that day. There were two canons in this location which were to be fired together. I had no idea this was taking place, but hurried over to the attraction when the explosion occurred. One of the canons misfired, meaning that it never fired its load and had to be reset and attempted to fire gain. In the mandatory two minute wait, I scrambled into a position to try and capture the fire from the explosion and the billowing smoke from the front of the big gun.

Enjoy, and have a great September
