It's 2 in the morning...

CElliottUK (Reading, United Kingdom) on 4 December 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture.

I'm on the north Wales coast in Pontins Prestatyn. It's 2:03 in the morning, I've had an outstanding 24 hours, and have taken over 2000 shots of "Hard Rock Hell" a heavy metal festival..
This might not be the best shot on the cards, but given that I need some sleep, it's the best I can do.
This is the lead guitarist of Black Stone Cherry, one of my favourite bands.

ha - glad to see you posting at all hours :)
hope you had a great time and got some good photos

@Jason Kravitz: There's a sort of twisted sado-masochistic tendency that I have. Almost as a dare, I don't have any shots to put up when I go the these events, so I HAVE to get one shot, selected and posted, and because there's never any 3G bandwidth until the small hours. It's always late...which, of course, means I've got more time to drink beer!!!!!!!
