Just take the wide #20

This year I knew where the Beltane busk would be, so I was ready. Basically a bunch of Beltane performers do a free form show lasting several hours by the galleries at the bottom of the mound. This means drumming dance and fire for the public to raise awareness of Beltane and make a little money for the society. Spectators included bemused Japanese tourists and a stag party in drag. Last year I was caught by suprise and only had my 12-24mm lens. This time I took wide and long zooms plus flash and ST-E2. The latter being a little box that impresses me less and less the more I find out about it. It OK in a pinch but its not a good creative tool. Where are manual flash power settings and rear curtain synch?
As always it was a fun shoot, you can see bits of it 14:00-> sometime after 16:00 on the O2 memory project, a giant baked beans tin full of cameras that take minute by minute pictures making a 360 degree panorama.
