Boom by tanikel Boom by tanikel
110930-A-VB845-077

A plume of smoke rises in the Ganjitsu Valley, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, Sep. 30, 2011.
Soldiers from the 2nd Squadron, 38th Cavalry Regiment had found a cache of homemade explosives
inside a compound on the mountain and had destroyed the cache. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina
Truluck/Released)


Just to give you a hint of how massive this explosion was...the village in the foreground was hundreds
of meters in front of the location of the cache. We felt the concussion even where we were at!


My military imagery is available for public domain. As the photographer, I don't have control over
how you may use it, but I ask that it be done with respect to the individuals represented here.

Dayum, that must've been quite exciting just to capture that, from that kind of distance.

It was. Even from that far away, we felt it.

Same here! I'd love to go EOD, but I'm not a fan of the bomb suit.

I'd love to be able to create them!

The closest I can get to that back at home is just shooting paint or soda cans and busted electronics with my buddy's Mosin Nagant and our handguns.
