Great image and title, Moira. So difficult to get a shot like this in focus. Positioning is so important plus... A lot of luck.

What a magic photograph; 4 white knuckles, 1 relaxed hand and an expression of quiet enjoyment, 1 rather relaxed posture and i face full of delight and wonderment and excitement.
No wonder you are the bestest photo journalist in the whole world SmileSmileSmile

Great action shot, Moira. The flying hair gives it a real feeling of motion and speed.

They look like they're a bit unsure if they're enjoying it - especially the girl in the middle! 😁 The fast shutter speed has captured them very well, considering how fast these cars whizz around 👍

Francis, I think the secret is to watch for the ride's pattern of movement. Cars will present themselves at the same angle every four rotations with this ride.
Thanks folks, and thanks Joop for the UA..

I bet none of them are wearing Harmony Hairspray!
Proof, if it were needed that 'fun' isn't always fun. Bah humbug indeed! SadSadSad
Yours misanthropically, E. Scrooge.

Cracking image by the way - love it!!! SmileSmileSmile
