It's in the Can

By NDODS    
A little variant on what I had been uploading during last week. No digital manipulation, or photoshop was used, The image you see before you came straight out of the camera. The set up however is a closely guarded secret, but if you need to know, please contact me via PM.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments regarding yesterday's rather unusual Silly Sunday Upload. The winner of the Caption Competition was Tibetan (Leon), simply side splitting satireGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

My surgery went very well yesterday, the nerve blockers are now seeming to kick in, consequently I have rather good movement. "For how long who knows?"

I hope you all have a great day, whatever that may hold.

Regards Nathan

A brilliant image Nathan. A pleasure for the eyes and for the delicious vibes too. My right foot tilts in a limp. Motocross nerve damage. Same club eh? Fairly elegant limp though. TG

Well lit and well constructed Nathan, with a good idea behind. I was trying to see whether you'd used fishing line and cloned it out or 'composited' the image. I did notice something on the LHS of the reflection that's not really visible on the main image but whether that's a piece of string or something, I can't tell!
