" Scary Night "

By cameracat
Hi Folks,

Imagine this, Your in the middle of nowhere, Its pitch dark, Its so quiet you could hear a pin drop....!!!

Then you see this lot coming up the road, " Scary " Huh!

Quite menacing I thought....Sad

This is something called " The Cutty Wren " parade, A centuries old custom of Suffolk & Norfolk.

Only lighting was via the burning torches and lanterns, With a hint of fill flash via camera mounted speedlight.
