Photo Blog 83 – Samoa 6

6 08 2009

Samoa 6 and Samoa the last I swear. And I think I have kept the best till last too.

On our last day in Samoa we had a flight leacing very late at night and the Hotel we has stayed at the night previous was nice enough to let us stick around. Even better it was their grand opening so there was a *cow* on a spit (pigs are for weaklings with small stomachs) lots of free beer, the Prime Minister of Samoa and a faifai that featured fire dancing (something we missed out on the first time).

So I had heaps of fun taking shots of the fire dancing and had a prime position with only the swimming pool between me and the action. So a couple of the best shots (tweaked for exposure and noise but thats all):

Fire dancer 1 (f4.0 1/160 47mm)

With some of the shots I tried to capture the reflection on the water too which looks quite cool.

Fire dancer 2 (f4.0 1/80 70mm)

Of course if you play with fire accidents will happen and the new wing of the building was almost burnt down by an over-zealous dancer:

Accidents will happen (f5.6 1/15 105mm)
