This is stunning.
Beautiful in its terror. Epic in its realisation. Should be hung at Naval Command in Portsmouth UK.
The detonation of the French 118-gun ship of the line Orient's magazine was reportedly seen from miles away and killed the majority of the ship's crew. There was actually a short pause in the fighting after the Orient exploded.
One wonders why there isn't more cannons firing between other ships... but an awesone looking piece all the same.
That is gorgeous.
Whoa that is amazing.
Whoa... that's beautiful.
