This was taken at Hampton Court Palace during their Christmas period. The Jester is fantastic, very funny and very clever. I snapped this from the far side of the court whilst standing on the corner stones of two pillars to gain a little extra height. This was mostly a victory for the new 70-200mm VRII Nikkor lens I bought myself for Christmas, but still a shot I’m very fond of!
Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 VRII @ 200mm
1/60sec. (VR on this lens is actually insane.)
