Hang fire and wait patiently John - apparently it does get to you eventually, they contact you apparently ;-)

Cheers, Amelia

Fantastic picture, I have no idea how it never won that months contest. You have a lot of guts to get out with your camera in those weather conditions.

Greetings from Scotland.

Thanks guys, Andrew I took this shot with a big lens 50-500 safely on the top of a cliff, and about a half mile away from the action, lol. I'm not that brave mate.
