Strumpshaw Fen

Our wedding anniversary; Ann took her macro lens, while I opted for the 400mm.  I took 72 frames, swifts being the usual diversion, while she took many more, and saw the Swallowtail.

Mini Mods

The Riley Elf (top) used to be the luxury version of the Mini!  The others used to be someone's pride and joy.

Dust Bowl Racing

Grass Track Racing at St Neots Autodrome.  All photos at 1/125th second.  The young driver of the Mini in the crash was Hannah Spary from Luton.  The steering failed before the corner.  She was unhurt and later asked for photos of the shunt - she was amazed to see what had actually happened during it.
