The last 14 months have been a challenging time for everyone, especially if like me your income depends on live events, social functions, or anything that involves human being interacting with each other.
As we move in to the summer of 2021 and lockdown eases, there is now more freedom for people to enjoy their lives, so I was delighted recently to photograph my first public event in well over a year.
‘Cars At The Castle’ is an annual car show staged by Hertford Town Council in the grounds of Hertford Castle, featuring modern and vintage cars. The event was cancelled for 2020 so this year is the first time in two years that the show has gone ahead.
Fine weather and a thirst for public entertainment meant that the event was well attended, with people queueing to get in to the castle grounds.
The following images were taken with a Sony RX100 VI that I recently bought second-hand to replace an RX100 II. The image quality is outstanding for a one-inch sensor and the 24-200mm zoom covers most situations. The images were edited with Affinity Photo and Nik Color Efex Pro 4.
