I took the Canon 5D and 450D with 70-200 and 100-300 lenses. Most of the shots were taken with the 100-300 on the 450D.

Step This Way at Washington Old Hall

For the second successive year the Appalachian style dance team Step This Way were invited to perform at the 4th July celebrations at Washington Old Hall (UK).

This year the organisers had erected a marquee in the grounds, great to keep off the rain but not so good for photography!

Completely airborne!


Colin always makes a good subject!

I waited for ages to capture the bear inside the colourful ring!

Bollywood Brass - great entertainment from this London based band, made me want to go to see some Bollywood movies!
