One of the colourful trucks at the Circus last weekend.

Bonny Peterbuilt that.


Comment by Ken R on 18th January 2014 at 00:15
Bit of a steep hill it was on.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 18th January 2014 at 00:37
Nice that Dan. Love the angle and the vignette :)


Comment by Derek Platt on 18th January 2014 at 02:27
Excuse me Dan, far be it from me to comment, but were you drunk when you took this pic. I don't understand the angle. Mind you it's 6.30 pm in Vancouver, I could be the one who is drunk. Good truck though Peterbilt are the best.


Comment by Mick on 18th January 2014 at 08:24
Dan was you stood with one leg in a hole when you took this photo.


Comment by Dan on 18th January 2014 at 09:32
lol no not drunk, or stood on one leg, just wanted to try a different angle from the norm :-) I think Dave has got it....


Comment by A.W. on 18th January 2014 at 09:41
Makes me feel giddy!


Comment by Janice on 18th January 2014 at 10:00
Nice shot Dan, good to see something creative, nice jaunty angle and vignette.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 18th January 2014 at 10:18
Dan; Can`t see any sense in this angled photo. When put in Windows Photo Gallery you can`t make it level but it looks a bit better uphill i.e by rotating 90 deg.clockwise.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 18th January 2014 at 10:28
A.W. if you are feeling a bit queasy you could look at this:

but Dan's photo is better!


Comment by Anne on 18th January 2014 at 10:46
Was it a U.S.A. Circus


Comment by Linda on 18th January 2014 at 10:55
Well I like the angle of this. It's a nice change and very artistic.
The bright colours of the truck and Big Top stand out against the grey January sky. Well done, Dan!


Comment by Dan on 18th January 2014 at 10:59
It seems to have caused a mix of opinion today :-) For a more "normal" view I also have this pic... http://www.woodgreenstudios.com/p836725440/e2b8e2093 and yes, it has had some HDR treatment :-)


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 18th January 2014 at 14:38
It`s super colouful picture but its not done ny neck any good!


Comment by Helen on 18th January 2014 at 16:23
I think I go along with Janice's comment. Nice to see something different.


Comment by Joanne on 18th January 2014 at 17:06
In answer to Anne's question - "Circus Vegas is an American Circus touring the UK. It has no animals. It is full of fun filled acts from around the globe suitable for all ages." (Facebook)

A striking photo, thanks, Dan :o)


Comment by Gerry on 18th January 2014 at 17:10
A stroke of genius really. With that angle the lights on the pole would never fit in the frame unless taken from a long way off. But then the truck would not have the same impact.


Comment by Ellen on 18th January 2014 at 20:31
I love this picture! The subject merits an unusual angle and that and the colours suggest the circus very strongly to me! I will add an extra and maybe uncalled-for comment that one of my own photo favourites was one of the Tower of London taken at a similar angle,which I made on a visit with my daughter in the 1980's. We came across it recently, -my daughter said "Yes, this was a great shot, even though at the time I thought you were a little crazy to do it!"


Comment by Lizzie down under on 18th January 2014 at 23:16
Your different approach paid off big time Dan....I like it.....cheers!!!


Comment by Dan on 19th January 2014 at 10:36
Thanks for all the comments and opinions. It just goes to show how one photo can be seen differently from person to person and it's what makes this hobby so interesting.


Comment by Alan on 19th January 2014 at 12:14
I hope our wedding photos don't turn out scuwifft.


Comment by christine on 19th January 2014 at 13:52
What a nice change for a shot
I've always thought what a hard way this is to earn a living along with the fair people.
constantly putting up equipment and lighting and the taking it all down again and moving on to the next town unable to put down any roots.
they have to be admired

Beautiful truck
