Photo-a-Week Challenge


Week 20 – 37. Stop Action


This is at the Gymnastics display for Christmas at our grand daughters’ Gymnastics Club. They put on a superb display with the Olympics as their theme.

Photographically it was difficult with disco like lighting and of course moving gymnasts. I had  a 18-250mm lens but no flash was allowed so it was a compromise to choose a shutter speed to make a picture in the light available and try to freeze the motion. I could not use a tripod either. I have chosen a shot where the children are not easily recognisable.

We won a fantastic hamper of goodies in the raffle so all in all it was a great evening!
