A Cloud of Shotgun Pellets
While covering an Association of College Unions International (ACUI) Collegiate Clay Shoot event this weekend, I got a bit lucky with a few “burst mode” camera shots. Ever wondered what a cloud of 7 ½ shot pellets looks like just before impacting the target?
A cloud of 7 ½ size shot pellets a split second before impact. Note the wad at the bottom of the frame.
Lightning strikes twice once in a while. While not as clear as the first photo, the shot cloud is visible here too.
A shot cloud is visible between the top of this shooter’s head and the rising trap target.
The inevitable result of a center hit.
