Close to the wire

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload and also thanks to Julia for the GEA and Pete for the EC very much appreciated.
Also thanks to the following who gave the image one of their UA:
Ugly, digiral-boi, answersonapostcard, wolfy, cheesey, ringneck and Alun, again very much appreciated.

Another from the Stalag Escape section of the event, but of me the eyes and the expression says it all really

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

I think the expression "Don't shoot until you can see the whites of his eyes" is very appropriate here, Richard SmileSmile Strong expression and good body shape. Excellent dof.

If this were a postcard and saying "wish you were here" I'd have to text back at once "never on your Auntie Nelly".
Each to his own I guess.
But another cracking shot of this competitor and the look on his face surely says "how the heck did I get in this?"

I loved the previous (congrats on the EC for that one) but this is rather different. It's darker and moodier, really giving an impression of the effort and I think hardship of this event. Great pov, angle, and expression.
