945 in the killing fields

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload, which was a little while ago now, very much appreciated.
Also thanks to the following people who took the time to award the image one of their UA:
Barbara Hirst, Carsten, Tim Munsey, Herge88, Deep_Bhatia, Sandy, Wolfy, Seaids, TrevBatWCC, Julesm and Paul Lilley certainly not had as many UA for a long time.
Thanks also to John of the GEA too.

Sorry not been around as much as I would have liked but a lot on at the moment however I did manage to get access to the Tough Guy event last Sunday, thanks to Joel Hicks, Model, and fitness fanatic, a great guy and well worth working with as a model.

So here is the first of a few from this event - hopefully if I can get some time to process some more.
Thanks for looking
Regards Richard

Terrific fun (for photographers). I really want to see this one day, I think I'd be in my element too. At a safe distance...

At first I thought this was from the Malton Mud Race. A really impressive and well timed action shot Richard.

The expression says he's in his element. The moment very well captured, Richard.

A strong image. Well taken.

So well timed Richard good action captured so well with good detail.

I fail to understand how he can look as if he is having the time of his life! Would really love to get to one of these events as a photographer, not as a contestant!
A raw image, Rich, very powerful.
