Description

Japanese Samurai archery (Yabusame). These folks fly down a course on horseback and hit 1 foot targets with bow and arrow. Taken on Zushi beach, the same place where this was first done on September 2, 1199. Spectacular to see. I was trying to freeze the action and get tight enough to have a Sports Illustrated style photograph but all I had was a 200mm lens.
