Just after 7:00 P.M., the police came along and made everybody move back about 500 yards. Everyone scrambled to get their cameras set back up in time.
As I was setting up, the one minute warning sounded. Followed shortly by a shout of " Fire in the hole"

The "Big Bang" 20 holes, each 16"in diameter and 45 feet deep are detonated. I snapped this at just the right time.
