Missoula, Montana, 2005
This event is held each Autumn a bit west of town. Lots of good ol' boys and engineers and people with no financial incentive, spent a lot of time building huge compressed air artillery, that then launch pumpkins nearly a mile.
This is a natural photo -- not photoshoped at all -- just good timing of a compressed air powered cannon, having just sent a pumpkin flying.
This photo is from 2005. Click here for photos from 2006, which has trebuchets and pneumatic air cannons
