Morning everyone,

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on my bit of restoration work yesterday, much appreciated.

Another from the Thundercat Racing Team taken a week last Saturday, this was taken on the final lap, and as you can see they were really going for it !

Hoping to go away soon for a week or so, or even longer, we have an open mind, if the weather is ok, we might just keep travelling - just feel at the moment that we need to get away and have a change, so looking through lots of books at the moment and trying to plan something, so it all depends now on the weather. We have not had a holliday for many years.

Well hope you like this shot - BEST LARGE IF YOU HAVE TIME & AT F11 TO GET IT ALL IN !


PS. Will try to catch up with everyone today !

Good morning, Chris,
They have certainly taken off this time! Looks as if they are trying to escape out the top of the frame! As always you capture the detail of the action so beautifully....very well done.
(Not sure when you are setting off, but just hope you have a great time away...R.)

I agree with all the above; Another of your great capture's of a moment in time, most of us would have lost.
A Iconic Image of a power boat; you can almost feel the power and noise of the engine leaping off the page at you, and when you take a harder look you see the guy in the bow of the boat holding on for dear life.
POWER...NOISE AND HUMAN DRAMA a great image of the sport.
