Unbelievable.

16 & especially 15 quite possibly go down as the best shots I've seen this year (and most years) :worship:

Stunning set Chris, those Backfires, especially the head on shot are quite something. As always mate, nice angles and nicely processed :cool:

Russia is very flat isn't it, do they not take off up hills?

Great set old chap, and those Backfires are scrumptious!
