The camera was on a tripod , otherwise the image after the blast would have to be blurred , I guess. Caught the right Moment. Kr RK

Hi Richard, no tripod used here just a burst mode set to auto.. The cannon makes a lot of noise and smoke but as there is no cannonball or much wadding there is little pressure or Newtons law of equal and opposite reaction.. 😎😊😬
