Dangerous Silver Medal


Just a bit of self-praise: Yesterday I won a silver medal in my Photo club's (Bekkalokkket Fotoklubbs) autumn contest. The theme here was "Humour" ...

The guys fighting it out are members of the medieval re-enactment group "Konghirden 1260".

Congratulations! So is the real danger from falling or getting stabbed?

I remember we used to play like this when we were kids but used sticks as swords and a piece of a cardboard box as a shield. I would not be able to do much these days but then it was fund and it looks like your friends are having a go at it too.

I suspect the real danger is from falling about laughing. Congratulations on the prize.

That image is well worth a metal, as is your header! Looks like gold flowing down the valley.
