M-109A - self propelled canon.
Taken a few years ago during my reserve service. Wherever I went I had an Olympus XA in my pocket (35mm f-2.8 Zuicko lens, manual range-finder focusing, aperture control with shutter speed reading. made 1984).
The film I used was Fuji Neopan 400, developed in D-76.
Printed on Glossy paper, with the smoke and fireball burned in, to achieve some detail.
Full frame print on AGFA Brovira paper.
PS: brightness/contrast to match print.
Light and exposure:
The camera can wait 8" or until it receives enough light. I placed it on a stone and tripped the shutter. A full moon provided little fill light, and the shot itself the rest... Very lucky!
