Award Shortlist

This was taken at the last Welsh Open competition. The organisers gave me special permission to stand in a very good viewing point next the professional photographer. This is very fast and furious racing and you ensure you are standing in a safe place before even lifting up the camera to take a shot.

Excellent David. My husband was a groom for a friend of ours at Brighton - you have to be brave. I groomed for my sister but only at club level. Great fun. Cathy

Great action shot. This could be an exciting sport to photograph as it would appear to be lots of action going on.

Great shot David this is a great day out taking these, I had a day at a meet in Sandringham and was amazed at the angles the horses came around the bends at they looked like they were going to fall over, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did Smile
Thanks for your UA that was very kind of you Smile
