12th August 2010 : Royal Welsh Show 2010

700 photos taken at the Royal Welsh this year are now loaded in tha Archives. I took photos of 22 classes but missed the Section D Youngstock because we were showing our own cobs. Despite arriving in the grandstand before 8.00am on Wednesday I could not take any photos! I had got wet photographing the driving classes on Tuesday evening and there was now condensation on my camera lens. After a couple of hours pointing the lens to the sun, which thankfully was out, the condensation cleared but too late to record the drama of the first class! Yet again, after a bit of rain and helped by dancing diggers and the Kings Troop, the main ring turned into a quagmire but it did not slow down the Welsh Cob stallions and their handlers. Trefaes Exterminator and Daniel are pictured above. Perhaps Llanelwedd should challenge the bog snorkelling fame of Llanwrtyd Wells by holding in hand welly races in the mud!
