ZAPCAT CRASH

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments and clicks on yesterdays' ZAPCAT image, very much appreciated.

Here is a sequence of three crash shots - thankfully nobody was hurt in this one ! It tickled me when I saw the words ' HELP ' on the bottom !

BEST LARGE IF YOU HAVE TIME !

What a brilliant set, Chris, capturing what looks as if it could have been a rather nasty situation so well. I'd be no use at this sort of thing and can only admire those, like yourself, you can capture a moment such as this in such detail. I note the occupants of the second craft are looking back and not where they are headed.

Would you class photography as a dangerous sport? No - then I am relieved because I'll stick with it. These three images, however, make me cringe. Wonderfully sharp and full of action, marvellous.
Help is the right word.

Thanks Dave - As you know I love all types of photography, but especially anything fast moving.

Sunday could'nt have been a more enjoyable day - lots of sunshine. trousers rolled up over the knees, stood in the sea all day with my favourite 100-400 with a X2, and great action to photograph .... sheer bliss. (Although my arms have ached a bit since after holding that weight all day) but well worth it ! Looking forward to the next race !

I only caught this crash out of the corner of my eye, and just turned and shot - was delighted when I got home to find I had caught eight consecutive shots from begining to end. So a good day !

Thanks again Dave
