    When i first saw this in the preview panel I thought it was a roulette table lol. Great capture my friend, I love a good time lapse. The worrying things about these rides is if you don’t puke someone else might and you cop it, not really fair is it lol. And it’s good to see bubblers out there doing the group outing thing

  • HA! Indeed. Yeah, it is fantastic to be meeting other Bubblers and learning from their wonderful knowledge of photography. Thanks Jus!

    Wonderful work Keiran! It is amazing how it makes the image come more alive, when you have been there while all the photos were being taken, aye?! :))

  • So true. I have also been fascinated to see what other photographers captured from the very same viewpoint. Thanks so much Vicki :-)

    Like the angle you have used here, It is interesting to see other’s takes of the same subject.

  • Ha, yes – I was just thinking that too! We have all produced very different takes from the same subject and viewpoint.

    I had another thought! I am glad it wasn’t really at this angle!! Or we would be toast!!!

  • Heheh, so very true.

    OMG Keiran did you tip your tripod upside down? This is DEFINITELY the best angle! Well done

  • Ha ha, thank-you Diana (but I like your take on this subject better!). Nah, the tripod was up the ‘normal’ way – I just rotated this image in Photoshop, as I liked the angle.
