For those of you who may be going to Canowindra for the Balloon Challenge, you are likely to spend some time in Cowra down the road. This is the old WW2 prison camp site, Cowra. There is not much of the camp left, just some foundations in an empty field. Read more about Cowra here: http://www.cowratourism.com.au
I enjoyed my visit to the Royal Easter Show in Sydney last weekend. I will be back there soon to cover more stories, but last weekend the focus was on a gentleman who had to allow bees to swarm over his chest and neck. All in the name of apiarists everywhere! I won’t post any photos of that just yet, but you will be able to read about it later in Wildlife Secrets magazine. The show is a great experience, as you can see by the look on the face of the happy customer below:
The stunt riding team thrilled the crowd:
Configuration of the bag for working at the Royal Easter Show. On this occasion I had a 28-70 2.8 lens mounted on an EOS 60D. Also in the bag, a flash unit and a Sigma 50 mm f1.4 lens plus spare battery, memory cards and note book. Water bottle was pushed into an elastic pocket on the side of the bag.
Look out for a review of the Think Tank SubUrban 20, which is shown below. I’ll also be covering the Canowindra Balloon Challenge and the Royal Easter Show. For more information see http://www.canowindrachallenge.org.au and http://www.eastershow.com.au
