a tale of woe....

decided tofay to take a wander at lunch down by the canal, see what i could get, very overgrown though, so i battle along, thinking it will be ok, rapeseed field, no problems....

get to destination, the military canal at the back of where i work near hythe, took 4 shots of Dragon flies, started on my way back...

I followed my track back, i could see the flattened foliage and followed it carefully, though it was hard going as the foliage was quite hard to walk through, my legs were starting to get a bit sore as i had shorts on...

I reached a point where the undergrowth was thick and high, and then, a small clearing, then more tall stuff.

Disaster struck, whilst battling through the tall stuff, i slipped in a dried tractor rut, my ancle turned at down i went....into the ONLY patch of nettles on the entire path.

So here i sit, my ankle strapped, my legs throbbing from the walk and the thrashing from the undergrowth and the nettles, and huge nettle rash.


Great

and worst of all

the shots sucked :?

Ouch, you had me worried there for a moment, I thought the camera was going to end up in the canal. Glad you're more or less okay

It's hard to tell actually Matty, some sprains can be more painful than a break. You need to get it checked out though! Good excuse to pop a cork on medicinal grounds though. :wink:

Try running it under the cold tap to reduce the swelling.

Your foot that is!

Like anything that's worth doing, photography requires blood,sweat and tears. And here is a good example....

Hope it sorts out mate. I feel for you.
