Hello imac,
so glad I have Google Alert on Katherine Jenkins as I was at that event with a number of friends as fans of Katherine and most of us had queued up from 3pm at the entrance gates to make sure we got front row seats and I can see some of my friends on your photos. I took quite a lot myself A great concert in spite of the weather and a lot better than the day before concert that was rained off.

Mac: I see you had to suffer through that concert. LOL She is a beautiful girl and I imagine a great singer. You are the lucky dog.

Your pictures are terrific! Looks like a fun concert and Katherine Jenkins is truly lovely, but how did she stay warm???? Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

Thanks for taking us to this concert! It must have been cold and yet Katherine Jenkins was dressed in a dress without sleeves. Very brave of her.I think I have seen her several times on TV. She is a beautiful girl.

Those are some intrepid concert-goers there, Imac. Wow. I don't know how the pretty woman withstood it in that dress. Oh well. Looks like a great place.

Katherine Jenkins is certaily a beautiful lady, but I am not familiar with her music. I'll have to Google her, hope she won't mind!!!

Kathy said...

Never heard of either of those groups. They must be really good to have so many people out in the cold to see them. Hope you stayed warm. Enjoyed your pictures.

Ruth said...

The performers are not dressed for the weather for sure!! I went to an outdoor concert put on by our symphony orchestra last May and they cut it short due to the cold. They said the temperatures would damage the instruments, and it was above freezing.

Looks like a fun concert. You can never go wrong when their is open air music, and you have a good (and comfortable) seat.

Larry D said...

Wren said...

I need to look Katherine Jenkins up in google and learn more. Great photos - I love outdoor venues for music.

Arija said...

maryt/theteach said...

imac, wonderful photos with a wonderful lens! That's the way we here in the US would look if we went to a concert outside in winter! Ha! :) The female singer is gorgeous!

RuneE said...

Holding a 300mm (which on a D80 equates to 450mm) by hand and shooting at 1/320 is impressive indeed! Keep up that steady hand!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Very nice and i bet you all had a great time looks like it was fun

2sweetnsaxy said...

I'll bet that was fun. I like open air concerts. We have a huge jazz one every summer up near me. It was just recently moved there because the crowd is so big now.
Great shots.

Hugs and blessings,

Looks like a fun concert. She liked to change costumes too so it was quite fancy.

gnometree said...
