Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload, very much appreciated.

Competitor 3192 use the running on water approach to crossing a water trap in the killing fields section of the event.
The smoke is from the burning straw they have just had to cross and yes the there is ice floating in the water.

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

"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
