Absolutely fantastic, what a cracking image this is, how on earth did you get this?

well done on all the awards you deserve every one and more. put this up in a competition your chances would be excellent I am sure.

By the way they are very impressive settings you used, especially the ISO, I noted the Canon 1D, is that the canon 1DX by chance?
