I think people who ran this Nordic Race were incredibly cool. I would never be able to – and never really want to either. But I’ll be more than happy to take more images next time 🙂
Here the runners had to walk the line along a metal pipe. It sounds manageable but the whole construction shook when more than one person tried to cross. If you fell down, there was a detour around some poles in the water.
Apparently the main problem was the water under the construction. More than one ankle and one knee was twisted. In fact, I think we were there when a woman broke her ankle.
In the image I caught a guy who got the wind blown out of him as he fell across the metal pipe.
Looking at the previous images from the Nature Day by the beach a few weeks ago, the place seemed pretty empty. This just goes to show how selectively you can photograph depending on what story you want to tell.
Walking just a few hundred meters the beach was packed with people running a 5 km. extreme race. The paper had only asked me to cover the Nature Day but I couldn’t pass up the other opportunity – greatly appreciated by the editor…
