Photos from Tough Guy Nettle Warrior 2014 have been popping all over the place over the last fortnight.

Hagley Camera Club also captured some fine moments, including some interesting versions of my flame jump, one of which looks a lot like it was taken microseconds before my demise. They were also lovely enough to send me the full-sized versions of the photos, so I can zoom into the granular details of the mud, should I so wish (which I do).
