Winter season equals winter sports

Friday, January 16th, 2009

Winter is here and also in Europe, so the camera travelled to Austria for some photographic opportunities in the snow.

These Huskys were running across a snow covered field. The light was poor and I had to use a high ISO setting. I hope to return later in the year for another attempt.

Powerboats – Carr Mill

Monday, May 19th, 2008

I had a change of subject this weekend focussing on boats on water as opposed to birds in the air. The beauty of such a race event is that the subject comes around several times in a short period of time, so there is plenty of time ato re-adjust and try again.

Oulton Park – August 27th, Bank Holiday

Monday, August 27th, 2007

I was invited to join a friend at a car racing meeting this weekend. Having no experience of photographing cars on race tracks, it proved to be quite challenging but very rewarding. It is very different to my usual Wildlife photography. With track racing, the subject comes around once every couple of minutes, almost guaranteed. That is a rule nature doesn’t follow in my experience. Here are a couple of images from the day.
