I like the fact you get a glimpse of her face as the sunlight filters through the visor.
Brilliant capture with all the gravel and dust surrounding the falling rider spot on.

Excellent timing. Spot on

Wow... superb capture in a magnificent light.

Quote:Wow... superb capture in a magnificent light.

The sun was low and the pro's were out with there cameras. I spoke to Colin on of the track photographers and he told me that they were struggling for light as well.
I decided to head down to that location because the sun was low, however shining over the hill at me and with the slight angle to the sun gave me the light I required for my shutter speed.
At the other end of the track the light was fading fast. This is always a good place to capture the odd crash as well becasue of the camber on the track.

Thanks for looking folks.

Double post. Sorry.

Awesome, the sharp focus on most of the gravel really captures the moment.

Glad to hear she was ok.

Watcha Richie,
excellent action shot in an excellent pair.
Well worth the RC.
Once again folks thank you very much for your comments and votes.
I feel so happy that you have chose to vote for the RC. Two days ago I never even knew what an RC was until someone pointed out that I had one on another picture, lol.

I'm new to photography (only since Christmas) and it you people who have helped me improve by offering advice. It might not be much for others but to me its a great boost.

Thanks you again.

Stunning, love how the sunlight has illuminated all that gravel, boy thats gotta hurt!
Good action shot with excellent timing. Try removing the cone as it takes the eye away from the action.

what a fabulous series of images, reminds me of the times I've gone to ground; (can still see the bike rolling/bouncing away from me whilst I'm trying to stand up, thinking I've stopped whilst skidding along at 40+mph!

great combination of light action (and I can well imagine the sound!)

52 clicks on a bike shot - that doesn't happen a lot on EPZ. Fantastic.

This is my favourite of the series because you're really drawn to her helmet amongst all thats going on and I love how well defined the flying stones are.
