Falconry Exhibition – Abbey Medieval Tournament – 2017

The Abbey Medieval Festival is one of the largest Medieval Re-enactment Tournaments in the Southern Hemisphere. This annual Festival is held in early July near Bribie Island in South East Queensland.
An impressive spectacle, the Tournament attracts re-enactment groups from across Australia and internationally, with some 25-30,000 visitors from the general public attending over the two days.
The festival is a great opportunity for amateur and professional photographers alike to practice their art amidst the life, colour, flair and flamboyance that the festival brings to the Sunshine Coast.
The images here have all been taken with an Olympus Micro Four Thirds OM-D EM-5 sporting the M.Zuiko f2.8 40-150mm Pro-Zoom lens.

Falconry Exhibition – Birds of Prey :

Just another of the wonderful performances by the volunteer re-enactment groups at the Abbey Medieval Festival, the Falconry exhibition is a must see for anyone attending this fabulous event.
Birds of Prey were often used as hunting aids to capture game during medieval times and the art of Falconry is well demonstrated during this fantastic display.
I hope you enjoy these few snaps from the Abbey Medieval Tournament – 2017
