Exercise: A sequence of Events

In this exercise we are asked to take a series of pictures of an event as the event unfolds, trying to work the frame in helping to compose better images. I found this exercise hard. Firstly in February there was not much on and the weather was awful, so getting out was hard. Secondly this is outside of my comfort zone, though I am glad of the experience.


The sequence is an event on holiday that involved a lot of climbing and balancing on very high wooden beams and ropes in a forest. The event climaxed in the 'leap of faith' where we had to climb a forty foot pole, climb onto the platform (rather wobbly) and then jump outwards towards a trapeze swing, the object to catch it, some of us did this, many failed, but we were wearing a safety harness. I enjoyed the event, here are the pics....

Kitted out with helmets that had to be worn at all times......








A taste of what to climb .....

On to the second level (the platform for the leap of faith can also be seen on the left of the shot

Of all of the photos we are asked to choose one that summed up the day, for me there was no particular image I like them all as together they tell the story, but below is one of the leaps by a very scared and brave lady who unfortunately did not make the bar, this image captures the moment showing the miss...
