At the opening night many musicians, actors and fire artists gather to celevbrate the start of the festival that captures many hearts.
Many of the visitors dress up in a medieval style, some as pirates, some even in more of a renaissance style. A tradition is that fire arrows are shot into the sea.
This year I continued with the long exposure technique to get a shot of the arrows going through the sky. This one was made without a filter and an exposure of about 45 seconds. With a filter I could have left the lens opened a bit longer. But this was exactly how I wanted it.
In the water stood a large M (the logo of Medeltidsveckan) It was hit in round 1, thereafter the light was so heavy that I needed the -3 filter to get it right. Those photos need editing and might be posted later.
