The Sniper

By AlleyCatz
Had an enjoyable day at Clumber parks WW2 weekend on sunday with Alan (wooly) and Janet (Chase)

It was good to bump into a few other faces from site also...some had thier cameras with them Mr P! Tongue

This is a chap from a group called Histeria....who are a living history/reenactment group.

They were all SAS Snipers that day....and a great bunch of chaps they were.... Here is one of Alans from that same group of snipers

Thanks for stopping by Smile

The grittiness of this adds spadefuls of atmosphere Alley. I might be tempted to make a squarish crop behind his shoulder?
Super stuff

I have been away in Wales on a Niggle Refresher Course but now I am back. Yakky da.

Like this a lot Alley .... punchy colours and nicely processed. Does he know that he's laddered his headgear though I wonder?
