Morning everyone !

Thank you all ever so much for all your comments & votes on my Wales Rally GB Series.

A big thank you to Denny for his Award on TRUE GRIT.

Also a big thank you to RW Photography & Hugh for their Awards' on DAMBUSTER

And also many thanks to Fab Vab for their Award on CAMOUFLAGE.

Today's upload was taken at the first run of the Wales Rally, as the early morning light was just starting to come through.

This car had just come through the water that you saw on yesterday's Dambuster, it went straight into a sharp left-hand bend, as you can see in this image, there is steam coming from the red hot brakes after the water dip !

I liked this shot as it shows the Steam from the brakes, the smoke & grit being thrown up, and also shows the terrible rain & fog these drivers had to drive through on their first early morning run.

All I've done with this image, is to clone out a bin that was in the background, and alter the levels slightly.

Well, hope you like this shot ?

Have a good day everyone !

Chris
