Tower of strength

Last month, David Oliete was highly commended in the “One Shot” category of the Travel Photographer of the Year competition for an image of a castell, the human tower that is a tradition in his home town of Tarragona, Spain. He shows equal talent with moving pictures, as you can see in the film below, which conveys, wordlessly, the motto of the castellers (“strength, balance, courage and common sense”) and much else besides.
