Take Off....!

By martin.w    
A Subaru Impreza in full flight after hitting a jump on the forest track on the Greystokes Rally 2009 . I spent a very wet Sunday deep in a forest up in The Lakes with three members of Killamarsh Camera Club. Extremely difficult to get a good view, as the tracks were narrow with deep ditches either side, but found a great spot to capture some of the more committed drivers. Pleased with this as it is shown as taken, no crop!

Returned exhausted and unbelievably muddy, but a great day out Smile

Not bad Martin maybe if you keep at it you could even make it as a motor sport photographer. Have you recovered from all the walking and diving out of the way.

LOL Chris, he's right...we were diving! As said the tracks were narrow and with no path at the sides...just ditches to dive into Wink
