Explosion

Photo of the Week 

Photo Information
Late in the evening on Friday the 5th of August there were the 300-year anniversary celebrations of the battle in Kajaani town in memory of the event when Russians blew up the castle of Kajaani in the middle of Kajaani river during the Great northern war in 1716. This time blowing up didn't happen by exploding the powder storage of the castle but by arranging a pyrotechnic explosion at the ruins of the castle - still a very active and massive event! I took
8 shots within less than 2 seconds and was surprised how well my K-5 II did with it (I had put 3 steps underexpose in advance, of course).

If they can blow it up every year it must have been very well built in the first place! Really dramatic shot - well captured
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks, my friends, for your nice appraisals. Well, POTW may be a bit exaggeration...
