When the most powerful of explosions occurs on the afternoon of 3 July, we need to make a quick escape with the boat, because bombs and blaocks fall several hundred meters from shore. We manage to increase our distance quickly by more than 200 meters; nevertheless, few blocks still land around the boat. Due to the circumstances, the movement and suddenly finding myself on the wrong side of the boat... framing of photos was not easy, but the spashes of many blocks landing in the water where we just were are barely visible.
