Kelmarsh Reenactment. (#30010)


I was invited to photograph the famous reenactment site in the UK – Kelmarsh. Unfortunately, because it is the UK, their plans of fighting in very heavy chain armour, with very heavy swords, and my plans of taking photos of their hard work from a comfortable-ish seat, were ruined by rain. I still managed some photos of the flooded village but my favourite is this – mainly because I love medieval ranged weapons. This was one of the two stationary weapons they had, the other was a trebuchet which is an order of magnitude more impressive but arrows are more appealing to me.
Best thing – they let me use it, and it is awesome. If the arrows weren’t blunted with a large leather ball, it would probably kill.
