NO1942 : Curling on Stormont Loch

taken 8 years ago, near to Rosemount, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Curling on Stormont Loch
Curling on Stormont Loch
A skip directs stones thrown by other members of his team (see NO1942 : Curling on Stormont Loch). The skip in the blue jacket has just finished sweeping the ice in an attempt to make a stone slide nearer the centre of the house.

Compared to curling in an indoor rink, the ice is rougher, it takes a different technique to deliver the stone, and there are few opportunities for practice. So I was impressed how close these stones were grouped to the centre of the house.
