SPEED

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on my last up-load " Lilly", very much appreciated.

Thankfully it stopped raining yesterday afternoon to be able to go to the Aberdare Road Race, I'd been looking forward to this race all year, so was so pleased to have a good afternoon weather wise to be able to attend, thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours of sheer speed, it was brilliant !

Well, here's one I picked out quickly to share with you, hope you like it ! It made a nice change to get back to shooting some fast action. Although it did take a little while to get back into the swing of things - they are so fast.

BEST LARGE IF YOU HAVE TIME !

Chris

I'll bet these guys were happy about the improved weather too. Great shot Chris, though with your ability I'm sure it didn't really take you long to get with the speed. Spent some time today watching the German Grand Prix from Hockenheim, good race, though a bit controvertial with the Alonso/Massa caper!

Super action shot, Chris. I admire those you can pan and capture this sort of fast moving subject so sharply......like Mal, I tend to prefer my subjects to be moving very slowly or not at all.

Excellent capture, Chris, these subjects are not easy to shoot - I had difficultly with racehorses and they don't move anywhere near as fast! The subject's beautifully sharp, with just enough blur in the wheels and the background.
