You are certainly the man when it comes to grabbing these rather superb full throttle, adrenalin rushing images Steve. "May I be so bold as to ask, to you use a monopod/tripod?", as the weight of your lens would certainly begin to take its toll on my spindle like limbs.

Regards Nathan.

Hi Nathan
Many thanks for your kind words and votes on this and many other photo's of mine, they're much appreciated Smile

I didn't use either a tripod or monopod for these shots, I had tried a monopod earlier in the day but I gave up with that as it seemed to be more of a hinderance than a help. Yes, the combination of a 60d body and the 400mm lens is quite heavy, but I soon got used to it and preferred the freedom of movement I had without the monopod.

Regards, Steve

Nice shot Steve.

Yes I will go with you on the tripod/monopod debate.... I find a monopod a bit of a hinderance too trying to follow fast moving action subjects.... you just have to get used to the weight of the body/lens combo used.
