I apologize to Johan, he guessed Bullet last night but I didn’t understand his “bullet ore cannon ball” guess. I thought he meant bullet core, which is what the wadding from a shot gun shell is sometimes called.

The “It” in question is the light colored shape in the shadow shown with the white check mark. It is not a sunny spot in the shadow. It is not a lot of things but what is it?

The blur shape is a 9mm pistol bullet traveling at 1000 to 1300 feet per second. My neighbor and friend Kenny told me if he stood in the shadow of his barn late in the afternoon and shot across the shadows he could actually see the bullet traveling. I arranged to set up a photo shoot to see if we could capture an image of this extremely fast moving object.

I realize that many of you are anti-gun, however this was a photography project in a private, safe environment. Kenny and others in the neighborhood like to target shoot. We live in a very rural area where Kenny has built his own target range.

Kenny!

I set my Nikon D40X with the Nikon 300mm VR lens on a tripod and set the shooting mode to continuous. When Kenny heard the camera start clicking he started firing the semiautomatic pistol. The ghost like object in the shadow is the dust cloud from the first shot he fired.

As most of you know I love to attempt to take extreme action shot images. I guess this has been the most extreme and I am a little surprised that we succeed.
