Some 15th century reenactors at the 3 counties show gathered round chatting and relaxing, the smoke from their open fire drifting past

Canon EOS 500D 1/400 second F/4.0 ISO 400 75 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Love this kind of stuff, hoping to get over to Tutbury Castle in Burton on Trent this bank holiday weekend where they have a similar style going on with Knights and fairytale. Should be good, if only the english weather doesn't ruin it!
