I wonder who will break the mould in 2013?

Many many thanks to John lifesnapper and Ken franken for their treasured U.A.s yesterday.

A little duck in a big pond looking as though he's paddling against the flow. Lovely colours and ripple shapes.

Precise timing is required to initiate the break...timing takes many years of practice Smile

2013 has 365 days of practice time available!!!GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
