64 Pounder Firing - Edit

I recently had the good fortune to get some video of a 64 pounder gun firing up at the Royal Armouries Museum, Fort Nelson.

The 19 acre restored Victorian fort was originally built to defend the strategic port of Portsmouth, in Hampshire, from the French, but is now home to the national collection of artillery.

The uniformed section firing the gun is the Portsdown Artillery Volunteers (PAV) who dress as the 2nd Hampshire Volunteer Artillery from the 1880’s to carry out authentic Victorian gun drills at Fort Nelson.

This edited video was shot on a Panasonic Lumix TZ80 for the 'normal colour' section, a Lumix TZ60 converted to full-spectrum infra-red with a Hoya RM72 filter for the IR section, and the final shot was taken on a Nikon D90.

My thanks also to the museum staff for their help in getting this 'shot' !
