That's why I am hesitant to put up the few I took at LP a few weeks ago! But I will, as soon as I have time, I promise! :thumbs_up:

Thanks for these lovely pictures Jan! :clap: :clap:

Awesome pictures Flying Cheetah and Jan! :clap: :clap:

I'l try and upload this afternoon Jan! But don't expect to much! As I have said before, we were there for only 20 minutes and it was over crowded. We couldn't go the next day as planned, because of the rainy weather. :thumbs_up:
