Playing Through

Photograph by Cedric Delves, National Geographic Your Shot

"Warm inland. Cold at sea. So fog rolls in," writes Your Shot member Cedric Delves, who captured this image in Folkestone, along the English Channel coast. "Cricket is prone to any and all even faintly adverse weather conditions (presumably why we English play it outdoors). Anyway, it fails to stop play this day. That said, she looked ready to quit, asking her brother over and over whether it was time to go and look for an ice cream!"

Delves’s photo recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

who chased the ball, each time it was hit? There's a faint line coming from the batter - along the ground.

Fog always makes for an interesting time or photo opportunity as in this case.      Almost appears to be another world.           Wonder if they finished their game?

Bare foot cricket, now thats new,in my very favourite sport!  A wonderful shot of two determined players, and one in the far distance, maybe hoping for a catch!!!  Love the picture that is so unusual,and a winner in my eyes. 

Ice cream be blown!  j.e.s.......
