I went to the Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes at the weekend, had a great time and managed to sneak a good few photos while dodging the camera police (aka marshals - although they allowed mobile phones for the first time they still tried to stop all unofficial photography). I'd just bought a nice little Canon S90 so it was a good chance to get to grips with it.

This one made me giggle, the Marshal is doing a sterling job at keeping the crowd at bay...

A sun halo was above us for quite a while on Saturday:

Luke Donald, one of many victims of the 200+ bunkers on the course:

Another victim of the bunkers, this is Tiger Woods' famous moment on the 6th on Sunday when he left the ball in the bunker and walked off with a triple bogey 7, effectively ending his challenge for the title:

Woods wasn't the only player to suffer in that bunker, Hunter Mahan and Greame McDowell also struggled:

Probably why you Europeans aren't as fat as us Americans but that ice cream cone is absolutely miniature by US standards (unless you are Andre the Giant).
ETA: I'm not criticizing, that is what ice cream cones in the US should be.

Hehe, whenever I have an ice cream (not very often) I have to take a shot of it! I think they were particularly little at the Open though but still yummy! :D
