Race Pictures Feb 28

The last in a long series of pictures from the ice races. It has been fun and a great learning experience. Thanks to Rob Wilson for taking us on the track Sunday. I'll be back.

Middlebrun & Perry Bay

I went out to Sleeping Giant Saturday instead of the Ice Races. I needed a change of pace and Christopher wants to go to the races Sunday. About 3/4 the way out I decided to walk the Middlebrun Bay trail. After returning I went to the main trail head and down to Perry Bay for a while.

The last two pictures are of Middlebrun Bay. The other pictures are from Perry Bay.

Best Close up

In the 6 days I've gone to the races for pictures, I have taken just over 4000 shots. A little excessive, maybe. Of all the pictures I consider this one the best overall. It fills the frame nicely, includes action and has good detail. The picture was captured with a 500mm manual focus lens. I've even surprised myself. Although the car was on a curve it was still in motion at the time the picture was taken ( from a distance of about 50 feet).

Canon Xs, with canon 500mm F8 manual focus FD mount lens, FD to EF adapter.
