As a spectator you definitely have to mind your step and try not to get in their way so you don't get trampled or burnt or both! Lots of people come to take photos and have this event on their bucket list.
This year I decided to take my 'proper' camera and a flash to take some good quality images and also some portraits of the people who carry the barrels, once they have taken part that is. The images show some pretty sooty, sweaty and charred looking people.
If you know anyone in the photos please share the link with them so they can see their images, or share on facebook and tag them :) - Thanks
