Log Flume Thrill - Tibidabo Amusement Park

[ENLARGE] Log Flume Thrill - Tibidabo Amusement Park

Tibidabo Amusement Park has been featured in Barcelona Photoblog many times, but this particular attraction had escaped from the lens of my camera: the log flume. Compared to other parks these are pretty modest attractions but being on top of a mountain and enjoying a panoramic view of Barcelona City adds up to the whole experience. From a narrow passage between a tree and the protective wall that prevents passerbies from getting soaking wet on their way to the park's exit, I managed to take a series of shots. It was fun cause I had to shoot and hide the camera every time logs hit the water. Big drops wouldn't touch me but a silent drizzle was constantly coming my way with some seconds delay. I will tell you now what I like about the image: Most of the times when you take snaps of people and they are aware of your presence they hide in their shells and wear a mask, but with moments like these you are able to capture for some seconds the real person underneath.
Today I stumbled upon: Meteora, Greece - eroded fantastic peaks upon which medieval monks built monasteries - and Space Lane by Dinyctics - impressive what you can do with a road photograph.

  1. This is a great shot just at the moment of "impact", and you are right, people do let down their guard in moments like these...

    Two robins were fighting in my backyard and I managed to capture them in the act.
