Olympic Torch Relay: Windermere

The light was getting low and the torch would pass me only once, I wanted to try something different, I did a test with an official that ran past first and then decided an 8th/second would give me the degree of motion blur I wanted. Luck still played a big part.


I'm following the Olympic Torch around the UK with Nature Valley who are the official cereal bar supplier to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, in each city I am doing a little street photography of the event.

You can see more of these images on Nature Valleys Facebook Page and follow my journey via Twitter.
