It's from an Danish invasion of a Swedish occupied are of Norway in the 18th century. This was back when Norway was a part of thw Danish Union. And the guy who invaded was a navan flag officer in the Danish-Norwegian fleet at the time.
I was standing in front of all the people behind the blocking rope and was very close to this gaint canon that was definitely the loudest. Fucking thing was 7-8 meter away. I got hailed with the grass in front of it every time it fired. But it was a good angle.
Here are the pictures:

This is that big motherfucker that almost sent me flying with the shockwave from the explosives.
And now it's not working, took them about 5 minutes to get it going again. Karma is a bitch.
This was the best canoneer at the whole event. He was practically by himself the entire time and shot way faster than everyone else. He looked cool too.
No wonder why the Swedes lost, they're all sitting around and watching the battle.

The guys from that reality show again. Yes they were in a part of the "invasion" this year. Fun as heck to watch.
These guys are definitely in the wrong century.
