2005-11-08 - Out of the Wake

More action from the weekend's powerboat racing. I found after a while I wasn't getting many interesting photos (there's only so many times you can take a panned shot of a boat traveling in a straight line). So in an attempt to get something more interesting, I walked up the riverbank to the turning point. This also brought me a little closer to the action, but as was the case for a lot of the day, I still wished I could get closer. My 200mm max focal length just wasn't enough for the sort of shots I was hoping for. I had to crop quite heavily to get today's shot.

ROB Even on a crop it has lost none of the detail. Great action shot, the water exploding everywhere.

Just been browsing your archives, there is some top work in there.
Stephen Cameron Thanks very much Rob :-)

I think this shot is saved by the fact there is so much spray - I didn't have to crop it as much as I might have for a similar shot without the spray.
