Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload, which was a little while ago now, very much appreciated.
Also thanks to the following people who took the time to award the image one of their UA:
Barbara Hirst, Carsten, Tim Munsey, Herge88, Deep_Bhatia, Sandy, Wolfy, Seaids, TrevBatWCC, Julesm and Paul Lilley certainly not had as many UA for a long time.
Thanks also to John of the GEA too.

Sorry not been around as much as I would have liked but a lot on at the moment however I did manage to get access to the Tough Guy event last Sunday, thanks to Joel Hicks, Model, and fitness fanatic, a great guy and well worth working with as a model.

So here is the first of a few from this event - hopefully if I can get some time to process some more.
Thanks for looking
Regards Richard
