The venue - a street theatre festival (Festival Belluga) outside a cathedral in Murcia, Spain. (ISO 6400). The festival runs all week with a different theme each night. Fabulous entertainment and like so many others in Spain, absolutely free of charge.

Last nights performance was a fusion of jazz, ballet, and flamenco, with just a touch of broadway.




These are a few I took of one of the more balletic/flamenco acts of the night. All at ISO 12800 (K5 + DA* 60-250)

Another great set Peter, hard to believe the ISO again!

I really love the last one - it is so full of movement and expression.

You are doing a good job of promoting summer in Murcia .

I am glad, what I find most surprising, and not a little disturbing, is that some of these images looked rubbish on the rear screen of the camera, to the extent that I almost binned them.

So, my tip of the week:- Never trust the rear screen. Never delete images until you see it on a decent monitor (unless they are really rubbish for some other reason).

Now you are just being cruel Peter.

It was 14C here - at midday yesterday. We have our own little depression over the Netherlands with the cloud and rain circling over us like water down a plughole - resulting in weather more suitable for October than July.

Don't forget that underexposed and overexposed shots can usually be pulled back. So don't bin anything

Aren't you planning on moving back sometime?

If I weren't such a wimp I think I'd be looking to move there.
