Too late as usual

It's a shame the "Weather" forum challenge has ended. I was shooting rugby this aftie, and it was one of the nastiest afternoons I have ever had to spend out of doors.



The photo doesn't show how cold it was. The football match up the road was cancelled, unfortunately rugby players are not so sensible.

John

Nasty indeed, the image says it for you, John.

I don’t know.... Rugby players and golfers (though golfers panic at the the first sign of lightning ). Nicely taken.

That really does fit the brief for "Weather!" Rather you than me!

Re: Too late as usual

Thanks all for the comments. It was a truly horrible afternoon, but at least I got some different photos. And since the football was off there should be lots of space for rugby pics in the local rag
