A Day At The Lake // High Wire Walk

I traveled up to Rudyard Lake to photograph Chris Bullzini's amazing reenactment of a the African Blondin's high wire walk of 1864. 

For me, this has been one of the most exciting pieces of circus I've ever seen. Chris's immense mastery of wire walking is always breathtaking, on the evening walk it was all emphasised with some perfect natural golden light and pyro's!

This image is made from several exposures, I used some ND to get a 30 second shot of the water, with a fast exposure for the sparkles, combined with some HDR to get the details in the sky and trees. There was just way to much going on for a normal shot!
