The Ramona Pageant is the Official California State Outdoor Play. It's been put on by an almost all volunteer cast and crew since 1923. The play dramatizes Helen Hunt Jackson's "classic tale of Old California."
I'm a member of the "U.S. Territorial Marshals-California," and we present some of the entertainment before the pageant. This got me a chance to shoot some of the entertainment and then the pageant (unfortunately from the uppermost seats) using the KM 7D, handheld, mostly with the 100-300 APO D lens. The play starts at 4:00 PM so it's mostly late afternoon light.
