"Oh to be young again?" A superbly timed captured image Richard, I can almost hear the reaction as he hits the icy murkiness.

Mrswoolybill says "Barking mad" and I tend to agree with her.
This is a stunning shot though Richard, full of action and caught pin sharp.

Tell me Richard do you think that you might be having a go next year? Wink Smile

Excellent use of camera control to freeze the action Richard, they may be mad but keeps you fit.
