Hi again folks,
As a rider to yesterdays blog and the main reason we went to Leeds Castle was for the Jousting.
Before the event started I got this one called " old and new" which I liked due to the man in the cap with the old style dresses seemed to stand out.
We set ourselves up in seats one and a half hours before the event started to get a good view of the castle and the action. There was a load of big cameras there and not to be outdone I took my Nikon mainly to stop the action, if needed. Well the event started and the King arrived who was also the commentator and looked funny with a microphone, it sort of looked out of place.
The organisers involved the crowd at the start and there was a procession around the parade ring which got everyone involved.
The ring was split into two with the blues our end and the reds the other, each part of the crowd cheering for there end, a bit like a football match really.
Right the action was about to start, there are so many images to put up so I chose a few.
If you look at the last shot you will see the shadow of the horse just then at the end of the show the sun came out.
All in all a Great event well staged, that's it...
nite nite, luv Mike xx
