    I photographed the Tough Guy event a few years back. A friend competed [and he came an impressive 9th out of 4,000+]. I ran around course with a compact, rather than burden myself with a heavier DSLR, marvelling at the lunatic things people do for ‘fun’ and what great pictures it produces.
    Totally insane, particularly if you are further back in race, where you have to queue to jump into near freezing water and then queue to get out again. Madness!

    Kim Høltermand’s images remind me of ‘The Day The Eart Stood Still’ – the original that is.
    Your tough guy comment reminded me to look at my pics and thanks to the speed of Bridge/PS/LR they are now online here.

    Though LR has just developed some weird folder location bugs and places all new imports from any location into my 2009-02-February folder!? Grr!
