I was lucky enough to get tickets to both the Olympics and Paralympics. What a wonderful experience both occasions were.
In August I saw the canoe slalom at Lee Valley, followed by athletics, swimming, goal ball and wheelchair basketball in the paralympics.
Photographically this is a new area for me as, apart from school sports days, I have never photographed sports activities before. I managed to hire a telephoto lens to help me out and, despite all the speculation before the games, I had no problems getting my camera and three lenses into the venues.
Below I have compiled a few images into a slideshow, there will be many more to come but I hope these give you a flavour of the event.
