Another view of the knight from yesterday, this time about to leave to take part in the joust, he does look more than a little hot in all that Armour. You can see the damage the lances do to the shields, which are made out of a thick plywood

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated, thank you all for the best wishes for my wife

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

Certainly makes me appreciate knights must have had to put up with more than blows from the opposition as they must have been half-cooked inside that armour! Fascinating image.

The shield is very battle-worn, so he must be quite an experienced jouster. I'm fascinated by the reflections showing within his armour. A pity that tent opening wasn't closed, giving him a cleaner background.
