There were total of 8 teams from other states of Malaysia participated in the competition. We were there slight late because we missed the first Lion from Malacca...
It also an eye opener for me because I'm never be so close to the competition area!
The jumping Lion!
It was Tough for me to take the photo that evening because of shooting fast moving object in low light situation. Most of my photos turn out blurred!
The judges of the night
The organizers had warning those photographers that 'Please Don't Use Your Flash Light!'...but seems like none of them got the message! Everyone still Flash like nobody business!
The Lions came out one-by-one and they did the Best they can on the Poles, but unfortunately...some of them fall down! (cause by their skill or the flash?! I'm not sure...)
The lion bend down, not falling!
The fall of the Lion
Total of 5 Lion's teams had fall from the poles that night, and most of them fall down at the highest pole at the back...
The Lion before it jump on the poles...
