Dave mentioned a snow-blower in his prologue, so never one to duck a challenge, I set about arranging a photoshoot using my long-suffering model.
However, things didn't go quite according to plan. I had parked it outside my garage, in neutral with the motor going as I was going to place it nearer the bottom of our sloping driveway. While my back was turned, checking the angle of the sun and other details, my model sat on the blower, accidentally knocking the gear lever out of neutral and into drive. Fortunately, my camera was already set reasonably correctly and as I swung round at the sound of her scream, I reflexively pressed the shutter.
Fortunately, the snow-blower was not damaged more than a couple of smallish dents in the front housing.
Oh yes, I almost forgot, my model will recover with proper treatment, according to the paramedic who attended.Wink

I was running out of ideas so decided to put the camera into interval shooting mode and get some slow shutter speed images of myself driving to get fuel. I think I did something similar once before for the BWC.

She's either damaged the car or maxed out your card...

Cutting to the chase....

All really good and thanks to everyone for taking the time to upload an image.
But this weeks champ (or champs) ..... The award for long suffering model goes to Mrs Malc and her long suffering photographer.
The missus is about to set off on an uncontrolled charge around the streets on a snow blower and Malcs' 1st though - get the shot in.
The expression on her face is priceless.


So over to you Malc.

Justly deserved result. Hope Mrs Salty feels better soon, she will be declared an endangered species before too long. Wink

Well done Malc and many thanks Dave for this weeks fun. Smile

Great shot Malc and model. Not sure how any of us can top that, but let's see what next week brings.

Thanks Dave for getting me out in the cold Smile
