I'm trying to work out the probability of someone hitting a 6, and the ball ending up smashing your camera :) But I think I have an equation wrong somewhere...

What is it they play here, Scally! Maybe cricket or something. They brought cricket now out of the UK and India to the snow on the top of Europe. :) Best regards, May

Great colorful picture with good contrasts. They must learn to play in the rain!

Greetings. Finn.

Hi Argenna, Thanks for your nice comment, these clouds soon turned to heavy rain.:( regards scally.

Harry Taggart on August 17, 2009

What you must take note of in any collision equation Fain is:- I am in a Hotel room off the cricket ground, my camera is tiny, and more important the men at the crease were both English, and watching their wild strokes, they would be hard pushed to hit a four. :D cheers scally

I never realised that Switzerland had such a long Cricket history? May, I place this 3 day long game as only one step up from watching paint dry, but the new Indian 20-20 can get exciting, and I see your mountain top match only lasted 45 minutes! The game they play on the frozen lake seems more spectator friendly, if they can dodge the wild bouncing boundary strokes? LOL cheers scally.

Harry Taggart on August 17, 2009

No! No! Finn, that would never do! Play in the Rain? Put all the men, who rush to pull out the covers, out of a job? and think of all the games the England would lose because rain did not stop play? LOL cheers scally.

Many thanks Lourdesa for your very nice comment, regards scally.

That's true, you're probably more likely to be hit by a stray golf-ball from Wentworth :D

You rent a hotel to see the cricket race. WOW! What a old pensioner life is. You should tell me that you are the lowest class. However, your quality life is not low relatively or comparatively. LOL

Cheers, Jeff

Harry Taggart on August 17, 2009

That,s comparable with winning the Lottery Fain, so I guess you,re not far out, now let,s see what you can do for interest rates for savers.LOL cheers scally.

Harry Taggart on August 17, 2009

Hold on Jeff you are going too fast! Me and my wife spent a couple of nights in a cheap hotel which overlooked the Derby County Cricket Ground. The room was cheap because of noise of the crowd watching the cricket, and because all you could see when you looked out of the window was the cricket! I think that watching paint dry is far more interesting than watching cricket,so I think they should have paid us for staying in their Hotel.:-(( cheers scally.

Rain stop you to play and force you to detain. LOL

Cheers, Jeff

How did you get so lost as to end up in Derby, Scally??

May Margrit B. (Swis… on August 17, 2009

Scally, I didn't know either, that cricket was played in Switzerland - I didn't even know there was a game called like an insect until I came to GB. :) Best regards, May

Harry Taggart on August 18, 2009

The rain did not Play Jeff, but when they covered the ground with water proof sheets, the view from the window was just as interesting,LOL cheers scally.
