Jumping for Joy

This is my first effort at a night photograph and there's much to learn! Maybe it's not even possible with my little camera - a Canon Ixus 850 IS. (If anyone knows, please tell me)

You can see one of the steeples of the old town in the top right-hand corner. This bouncing bed (I really don't know what they are called) is on the edge of one of the beaches below the Old Town. I like that the three girls were all in the air at the same time and obviously having such fun. Their respective parents were outside the caged area, calling out words of encouragement.


  1. Look Mom...Dad...I'm Peter Pan! Fun photo. These kids probably didn't need much encouraging. :-)

  2. Every time I see one of these I think I want to jump too!

  4. une belle photo de joie et de bonheur.

  5. Jilly, I've just looked at the five or so photos on this page and I'm howling (a bit)......I do hope the sun comes back to us soon.

    This night photo is fun. Just keep at it....try to watch out for the spot lights or any source of bright light which will blind the camera. Aim away, or use "spot metering" if you have it.

  6. I'm a novice at night photos too - but, in the absence of a tripod, finding something stable to rest the camera on - a pillar or post of some kind - seems to help.

  7. You did good...and captured the joy. We have a trampoline...they're fun for all ages.
