Photographer's Note

I felt I needed to add something from Norway again...
This is a photo I took this weekend in Tananger outside Stavanger.

Every year there is held a local celebration here, nothing special really just a local festival.

One of the things that is a standard at this festival is a competition called "Ta sjansen", literally it means "Take a chance" but a better translation would be "Give it a go...)
It is based on a tradition from a bigger festival in Oslo that included people sending their homemade rafts down a big slide, the goal being to reach a floating bell in the water some distance from the ramp.
Originally they also had a cycling competition which consisted of cycling on a narrow path floating on water.
This scene from Tananger is based on that cycling challenge, only they gradually changed it to have two people competing against each other by balancing over floating logs, then running 10 (tight) laps around a bottle before finally running back over the floating log.

Well, needless to say this you guy had some trouble keeping the balance...
I have also posted a photo of the millisecond before he landed this majestic "Splash in the water"

The photo was taken with my EOS 40D set to aperture priority.

Enjoy.
