Sword Dance

By Irishkate  
Something a little different tonight.
An action shot while you're all watching Olympic Opening Ceremony.
This was taken at The Gardening Scotland Exhibition where there
was a Pipe Band and some Highland Dancing.
Plenty more flower pics but don't want to bore you.
Thank you for votes for Clematis Chantilly.

I was watching the opening ceremony Kate,
and was surprised to hear of some ''sports'' I have never heard of before.
Should have Highland Dancing in it I reckon !!
Good shot.

Good capture and it looks as if it's a man doing the dancing too - don't tell me I'm wrong please. It's great to see highland war dancing not being done by a wee lassie.

Excellent! It's a very difficult subject (trying to keep the feet within the view-finder, for a start) and you've got an image that works as a composition, as well as conveying the dance. He's almost caught in mid-air, while his sword remains solidly on terra firma.
