Today’s weather reminds me of winter in Perth (except for the part where you freeze your nuts off). Gloomy, rainy, and generally sombre. But Kantalensa and I braved it and went to Tasek Lama to capture some extreme rock-climbing action. The great thing about this sort of weather, the light is fantastic. Not too harsh and not too dark.
We met Skipper Zack (first pic) on the way in, and he was kind enough to extend his, and his troop(?)’s hospitality to us. So Kantalensa covered the event from 8 metres above while I was happy to cover it at ground level heheh.
Anyway, this is the first time I’ve seen rock-climbing in real life and I’m awed by the skills of these climbers. Thanks also to Tya (second pic), who was Zadm’s source on the event.
Oh, and there was also a flying fox set-up and in between shooting the rock-climbing, I managed to get a few good shots of the flying fox (fourth pic), so I’m whistling away happily 😉
