Fabulous action shot in the mist - absolutely top notch! The bits of bracken flying about make it so much more special.

This is an absolutely terrific image, the mist providing that almost de-saturated effect, countered by the colour of the bracken in the extreme foreground along with the sublime timing of the capture make it a great image.
