Originally from Manchester, UK, now living in Warsaw, Poland and Tarifa, Spain, but also travelling frequently.

I currently use a Nikon D300 with Sigma lenses (18-250, 150-500, 105) and, for travel, a Sony NEX-7 with Sony (18-55, 55-210) and Tamron (18-200) lenses.

Enough of the boring stuff… on with the show.

    I am always a fan of photos like these.
    This is so amazing, and a great capture of the action and movement. I can hear the sound of the balloon popping, and the water crashing down.

    Wonderful timing, great capture. How many attempts did it take (chuckles)?

  • Thanks SunnieGal. Actually, you might be surprised – it’s quite easy to get the timing right and out of a packet of 20 balloons, I think I only missed one.
