Congrats Michael, a stunning photo and an outright wiiner from the start last month!

 

Ok, three from me ...

Difficult to know where to start. In the last couple of years I've thrown myself at everything - most of which I'd never done before - and now AIM tells me I have 3022 images tagged 'sport'!

And it's highlighted how lacking my tags are in emotional references 😞

Now that is a really exceptional photo. Great choice to go monochrome as well.

I agree it really stands out. Lots of excellent pix so far.

Thanks Avpics been trying to post a photo could not get the URL.

I had the same problem - I eventually had to go via Google Image search! The Alamy display no long threw up the i mage location option on right click. I suppose it reduces risk of theft but with high resolution screen a screen grab will do, but not, of course, for adding an image to a fourm post.

 

Drag and drop did not seem to want to work either.
