    Re: Olympic Torch in Shetland

    Chris, I was thinking of you watching the Torch on TV and wondering if you would get a shot or two

    BTW I must say, "Security" up there is AWESOME - not seen these Warriors about the flame before now :eek

    Hope your well ... and busy with weddings too !

      Fun day
      The lad on the far left and I worked out the picture and he persuaded the security to not run with the torch and keep the crowds back...
      It was interesting being in the pack of professional photographers...it was liek a machine gun battle... and the language between the stills and news video photographers was rather fruity and not all that friendly!

        Now that's what I call a proper reception for the torch! Awesome!

          #2 - Great picture!
          Now crop the top half and see how much more impact it has!

                Great shots Chris

                You boys like playing with fire up there I will be a marshall when the torch comes through Annandale on the 21st so hopefully will manage a few snaps.
