After some frustrating times with Picasa, I finally managed to get the photos of the Bourtange weekend online! There are 3 links:

And a seperate album with portraits... you might be in there!:

Hope you enjoy them! (if you've got a few moments left... ;-)

Cheers, Ellie

Great pictures. Are you allowed to take the camera onto the field? If not, that's a mighty zoom lense!

200 mm... sufficent for most occassions. This battlefield isn't that big, and it was no problem doing this from behind the barriere. Got a 500 mm since last year Grolle for 'larger fields' :-)

And in answer to the 1st part of the question. In the Netherlands ,, yes . If your peroid clothing is good ,
your are `safe` eg, an experienced re enactor , and discrete ,, and are known for taking good photos.
You made be offered a pass to go on the field ,, See Ellies post down this page about Grolle :-)
And if you want to see some paintings in oil with a camara ,, ask her to post a link of her 1600 dance
photos . Next to Buckets coat ,, those photos are the best :-)
