I can't hear the timer on my camera beeping with the wind blowing, the snow flying and my ears covered, so I do the countdown in my head as I'm scooting into position.
There are occasions when my timing must be precise, for example, attempting to capture my jump in Vladimir's Nightmare; a slight miscalculation and the shot is missed. The Mistakes Happen photograph illustrates one of my timing errors. I jumped a touch too soon and captured my landing instead of my leap. The picture also shows why my cock is not big on participating in my winter antics.
