Leif Segerstam principal Conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra Conducts Sibelius Symphony No5, caught live in concert.
This Finnish giant of a man is a world famous Champion of Nordic music and self professed brother of Santa Claus!
Wow,thats a cracker Simon.He certainly looks like a larger than life character.
Good viewpoint - were you hiding in the brass section?
Very good timing
Good to see the conductor from the other side of the stage.
Excellent clarity, with a well found comp - the 3 mebers of the orchestra here framing the conductor to create a triangle.
Cracking work Simon, and excellent exposure using the available light. It's always great to see these images in your portfolio.
Cool. One of my favourite pieces of classical music, too.
Don't tell me you were in the middle of a perfomance and had your mind on photography???
Great shot, anyway.
thats quite a fantastic composition Simon
Can see the family likeness, every inch a Claus!
Excellent image Simon. I regret to say, I have not heard of this Conductor.
Well captured Simon, your timing is immpeccable!
Have you changed allegiance from the RSNO?
Brilliant picture! So sharp. Insight into another world.
Hi Folks, Happy New year.
Boyd and Joolsb: I was lurking behind the Brass in the choir stalls.I was covering the concert for the BBC so I was able to be a bit less discreet than otherwise, hence using a big white lens!
Hi Gilly, I am with the BBCSSO Please don't mention the RSNO in the same sentence!!!
Oops sorry Simon, can you forgive me!
Delighted to be 30 for this outstanding image.
Both your loves in the same image, using your knowledge of the music you have captured the conductor at the peak of the action, well done.
A very happy new year to you Simon all the very best
I think it is brilliant!
A super capture..
Another outstanding shot from a priviledged position, although not in the orchestra this time. He looks like quite a character.
Excellent capture Simon, spot on timming for this one.
You have captured the atmosphere and the moment so well here. This is an outstanding photograph.
Oooh! I think I can (just about!!!).
