Explosions are Cool

Remember how I mentioned that they were doing construction across the street from my house? Well it turns out there is a lot of granite over there and they needed to do some blasting. I caught the last round on video and thought I’d share. I know it’s not Mac related, but it is kinda cool. If you watch after the dust clears there is about a 10-15 ft. high mound of dirt, rock and debris that was extracted by the explosion. All of this is happening about 200 yards from the MacCast studio. Crazy.

    Did that shake of the camera in the beginning happen because of the shock-wave, or did it startle you?

    Ilove the way the ground ‘ripples’!

    The shake was caused by the vibration of the blast.

    i love watching explosion videos over ” the World’s amazing videos” and in the movies as well. But seeing the actual thing is like heaven to me.
