Armidale and District Show 2006: Flying high

Flying through the air

I felt that the sideshows at this year’s Armidale Show were better attended by the show folk. The stalls in sideshow alley were many and varied. I didn’t risk my stomach, though, by sampling any of the food on offer, neither did I test my stomach’s ability to hold anything down by trying out any of the rides – especially those that required you to leave the ground.

This photograph, having been taken with a 300mm lens, hides the fact that the strong-stomached ones are about 20m (65ft) above the ground, and rotating at speed. I might add that it was a challenge in itself to keep them in the frame as they rotated around the pivot point.

    Brilliant shot. The colour in the sky is incredible and of cause the frozen action of limbs are perfect too. I can hear the screams through your lens.
