What fun!, not really, but everyone to their own, I guess: but a super shot of this participant as he/she (I can't decide) flounders in the muck and glaur.

Your description of a 'lady competitor' just seems a little incongruent TongueGrinGrin. She has my Respect with a capital Smile. I like your angle of view, Richard, makes a very powerful image but I do wonder where you are in this, then?
