Sierra Shooting Association / A sight to cover the site of impact

The first thing I noticed was that the succession of concentric circles seemed to indicate a dent, or a dimple, in any case, a 3D cavity. As I started meditating in more depth on the image, another meaning popped into my mind. Seen from above, the slight cavity vanishes, it becomes a flat screen, a sight to cover the site of impact.
The shooting act binds my body to the blazing sun that heats up the fields. Often when I'm gazing at it a huge all-crimson rose becomes engraved in my perception, locking me onto target. First come the summer sunlight pouring down, then a sharp edge crystallizes. Coming at a rate of seven a day, the crystals are razor sharp, but do not harm my eyes.
