THE RACE IS ON

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Thanks for your comments and clicks on yesterday's HORSEPOWER !

A special thank you to Lucien & Harry for their User Awards.

Here's another shot from the Saturday's Point to Point - I really enjoyed our afternoon out, it made a nice change shooting something different. I was surprised at just how fast these horses were, I chose to shoot at the last jump before the finishing line, as they were really going for it. I've chosen this image as I just love the look on their faces, especially the one to the back in red - hope you like it !

Chris

Tremendous action shot, steeplchasing quite often gives such wonderful images, they seem to run together a lot more.

Ohhh Chris. The expressions on the jockeys faces are one thing but the look in the horses eyes focusing on the finishing line is wonderful. A great sporting shot.... and they are not easy to get.

I've never really been keen on horse racing to be honest (especially when animals have to be put down after the National) but I can see why it attracts people. You've certainly captured the incredible power of these beautiful beasts and their jockeys. Considering how fast they shift you done incredibly well to get such a detailed image.

A cracking action shot Chris, you've timed this one to perfection. It is only when you see horse racing live that you can truly appreciate the speed that they are travelling at, they appear to be going quite slowly when you watch on TV!
