Quite the experience I am sure. I have never experienced this live. Nice capture of the simultaneous explosions.

Great shots but, anyone shooting this type of image should be careful to avoid the dust cloud from the implosion. It is harmful to both camera equipment and to lungs....


See my images at http://rpcrowe.smugmug​.com/external link
EQUIPMENT: Two Canon 7D cameras plus Canon D60 camera modified for full-time IR; Tokina 12-24mm f/4, 50mm f/1.8 Mark-I, 17-55mm f/2.8 IS, Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro, 135mm f/2.8 Soft Focus, 70-200mm f/4L IS, 300mm f/4L IS, and 400mm f/5.6L lenses;

Fortunately dust was never a factor. I was west and winds were northerly and very lite. Yes it was loud and was confused with first blasts and no visual signs of them.
