James Hillier - Isle of Man TT 2015

By SimonD3
Image taken during the 2015 Senior Race, which is the 'blue riband' event at the Isle of Man TT. This is one of my favourite spots which invariably provides a shot of the front wheel 'pawing the air' on the climb out of the very challenging Glen Helen section of this most demanding road racing circuit.The riders lose valuable time when 'popping a wheelie' and they generally try to avoid it but this is almost impossible on a 1000cc superbike!!! Makes for spectacular viewing though and hopefully a half decent photograph. The riders are brave and talented beyond words. Spectators watch the action close up from their favourite vantage points in the hedgerows around the famous Isle of Man TT circuit. I generally shoot in Aperture Priority mode and the conditions were bright enough to allow f/5.0 & 1/800s at 400ISO. For media submissions it is important to show the context, hence this a wider shot of the action but one which also shows the Island plus TT spectators in the background.
