Default Trap Shooting

I was out with my nephews today trap shooting over the Detroit river and got this shot at 1/800 sec. smoke form the barrel, the cartridge ejecting, the packing for the shot flying and the clay pigeon exploding.

I agree, what a picture! Talk about perfect timing and shutter speed, etc. Awesome!

Thanks, I found that shooting the image when I would have shot the clay I got the best result. The biggest problem was the direction of the clay is random and often was out of the image area.

Everyone else has already said it, but you nailed this shot perfectly! That is truly one in a million.
