Splashing Along by bigshotdan Splashing Along by bigshotdan
Well they do call it Eastern Creek. It was suggested that the long weekend's V8 Supercar action may not go ahead owing to the sheer volume of water flooding across the track. Thankfully the rain eased up and things went ahead on day one, if a little late...

Here is James Courtney on a quick one down the front straight. The high angle is courtesy of a wonderful spectator spot on top of the pit garages. If only those in charge of Queensland Raceway would do something similar...

Glad you like it! Funny you should mention the colour; this is one of the least-edited shots I have uploaded in recent history; only slight level adjustments...

Yay I like this one alot!! Not just because it comforts me to know I'm not the only one daft enough to stand in the lashing rain (2 out of 3 days this weekend) with expensive camera gear, not just because of the tasty crop, but primarily because it's all about speed.

And this screams it.

Bravo mate, well impressed.

And let us not forget the 'fresh' breeze that was blowing. Blowing. Enough to make just about any umbrella turn itself inside-out.

Glad you like the shot, though, bloke. Much appreciated! :thanks:
