This is one of the cast members of the Close-Act troupe from the Netherlands who performed here at Toronto's Wintercity Festival this past weekend and will be performing here again next weekend. The troupe is presenting 2 separate shows. The show in which this performer is appearing is titled "White Wings" and it consists of 3 performers, including this one, dancing on yard high stilts while clothed in all costumes that include beautiful, large, white silken wings. Lens: Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR. I shot this at 2:30PM and the day was bright and sunny. The black background is probably the result of where I was standing in relation to the sun. Because of the continual movement of the stilt dancers and the 2 costumed drummers who accompanied them, I shot at ISO 800 to ensure adequate shutter speed.
