Surf's up

By Taff
Again, taken last Saturday at Torness on the Scottish Borders. This shot just goes to prove that Surfers are as mad as a box of frogs.

Though this could be mistaken for a Spanish Beach in August it wasn't. It was freezing, my nose was colder than a penguins cold bits, we're talking chilly.

When I parked the car, this Brass Monkey came up to me and asked if there were any local garages that did welding!
(You've probably guessed by now it was a tad chilly)

So this nutcase walks onto the beach strips off, gets into a wetsuit, and off he goes into the North Sea. Barking Mad I say - get a real Hobby like Photography.

Was hoping for a few action shots, but he was off like a shot.

Sol lets hear your comment peeps Smile
