Pumpkin Cannon

Pumpkin Cannon

It’s good to start traditions as a family. And it is looking like we’re making visiting Tanaka Farms for pumpkins a tradition.

Since we were here last year, I had a better idea of what to expect. Of course there were the hundreds of pumpkins laying out row by row. Kids everywhere with parents in tow. Wagon rides and corn maze.

But I was there for the pumpkin cannon. This thing was launching pumpkins into the air. Pumpkins were easily flying across 200 yards. It was mesmerizing for me to see that. Seriously one of the best things to do with a pumpkin other than making a pie.

And look at that pumpkin flying. It took me 5 separate cannon shots to get the pumpkin in frame.

  1. Your photography is ALWAY so beautiful. May I inquire as to the type of camera you use to take such amazing photos. Bridgette


    • Thanks! I alternate between a Canon S95 and a Nikon D300S. The Canon is one of the best point and shoots around. With the Nikon, the lens is most important. I use a 17-55mm f2.8.
