Big bang

By oldgreyheron      
This sequence of images from the 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony in London takes us from the moment that the exceptional Stephen Hawking introduced a sequence of events where a celestial sphere impacts something to create an impression of the big bang.

Please follow the sequence of images- not all are brilliant photographically, but they were taken in real time and do, I think, tell a great story of part of this enthralling event.

Photographically I was juggling with lenses - real pressure - I need two camera bodies if I ever do anything like this again. I had the IXUS too, and did use it but not for this sequence.

More tomorrow...

I'm still excited and processing these images and sharing them keeps the emotions flowing!

Julia, V4 struck me the same way, but I didn't want to say that in the commentary! It was a very large pudding! Mike
