Glastonbury 40 and 2

It was our second year of father and son bonding at Glastonbury.  It was fabulous in 2009 and again in 2010.  People who imagine a mudbath or a group weirdo hug would be disappointed.  It is none of these things.  Instead it is a wonderful chilled walk through the finest in contemporary music and performing arts and more besides.  In one word it is an event.  Alasdair and I savoured the enjoyment of shooting in the dark with the D700. 

I have to say that I am still overwhelmed by the experience of seeing the Bombay Bicycle Club, The XX, Florence and her dancing machine and Muse but particularly Stevie Wonder dueting with Michael Eavis.  Almost too much to absorb and am still trying to understand my photographs.  Prince Charles was as always charming.

Alasdair spent 8 hours standing at the barrier of the John Peel tent on the Saturday  photographing and photographing and never stopping. 

Here is a first few images by way of a starter.  More and deeper later  :-)
