Every afternoon an honor guard of the Royal 22e Regiment marches into the Citadelle of Quebec on the historic Plains of Abraham for the Changing of the Guard. There’s usually a good contingent of tourists surrounding the parade ground for the ceremony. It is majestic, but fairly static and it was difficult to get a shot with out tourists in the background. At the end of the event as the old guard moved out, the tourists staid put. Quickly following the marching soldiers, I ran to the top of a small ridge and shoot down as they passed, using 1/3 of a second for a bit of motion blur and a clean background.
