Battle of Nantwich
The historic picturesque town of Nantwich, Cheshire is the setting of a yearly event - The Battle of Nantwich - which is re-enacted by the Sealed Knott, the organisation which perpetuates the memory of the Civil War. The battle originally took place in January 1643. I spent all day in the town and the images below are a sample of the days event from the antics of the drunk, his arrest and journey to the stocks to the eventual battle on the outskirts of the town. The Dimage A1 images were shot at 2560 x 1920 and ASA settings were 100 in the town and 200 for the battle. The Raynox 1.54 converter was used for some pictures. The images were cropped and sharpened in Photoshop. Click on an image for a 800 x 600 version. The anti-shake was on all the time and the lithium battery lasted easily all day for 310 images.
