A slightly different ariel portrait of Chris taken in a field near Tadcaster.

Note that Chris didn't squash any barley - he was in a tractor track when taking this leap.

a 550EX and 430EZ both on high looking down onto Chris

All good fun, and for the landscape lovers, a lovely sky too

Very grown up comic book image. Great colour and there's a certain amount of unique style about it and more than a touch of playfulness too. My wee niggle is the sky and the leg being in perfect alignment makes for a bit of a false appearance... great fun tho'. helen

Like this a lot Ade, the timing and effect is great. I've just started reading a book called the 'Hot Shoe Diaries'. Admittedly it's geared around the Nikon CLS system, but it's put me on a great learning curve about using off camera flash. Plus it's fun having a good play too!!

Cheers, Sean
