Fire Garden at Stonehenge

French "fire alchemists" Compagnie Carabosse have staged their striking installations across Europe. Each event is tailored to its location and Stonehenge was a great place for them to perform. We were allowed to wander at will amongst the stones and the fire baskets and there were some great photo opportunities.

This was the first real test of the EM-5 and it passed with flying colours. I mainly used ISO 3200, hand held, and most shots were taken with the Lumix 14mm or 12-50 kit lens. There is a small amount of luminance noise which is easily controlled in Lightroom 4.









EDIT: Now with images - sorry!

Nice ones Steve. Yesterday evening's show had to be cancelled due to forecast heavy rain and high winds, looks like you were lucky to have a show to photograph!

Ciao ... John
