I've put together a flikr album of today's shoot, some may find it of interest

You caught the aerial action very well Brian.

Maybe you can attach floats and outriggers to your mobility aids and get a little closer

Seriously, well done. I’d love to see more, but please take care


thanks Peter, these are rather routine record shots, I've been shooting this for over 15 years so tend to look for the "Special" before I get excited.

These are "duty" shots, a small group of us are the "Recordists" for all 60+ local riders so there will always be someone there whatever the conditions

I hope to get you closer once the new 150-400 arrives

(Take care - pah, I'm a super hero! )

I used to be a superhero too, but my arch nemesis stole my powers and now I’m just a 60-something year old mortal retiree with advancing arthritis and bad knees worrying about my next blood sugar and PSA test results


I'm only 79 but I have Winnie the Poo on my side (and my super hero persona is Stoma Man, the human embodiment of Dr Nefario's super sized Fart Gun - sorry you need to be a Minions fan to get that ) my arch-enemies are Gladys the Evil Hormone Witch and her side kick Edna

Believe it or not, the Americans on the two specialist websites I use for support have taken them to heart and they ask for constant updates on what they are doing

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
