Default ALMS at Mosport - Aug. 09 /intro.

I wanted to post in here as my first post...
I'm from just outside Toronto, Ontario and have been shooting for a year or so with my DSLR. Of course I played around for years before with many p&s cameras.

I have a Nikon D80 w/18-135 f3.5-5.6, 50mm f1.8 and a 12-24 f4 (all Nikon).

I like to shoot primarily automotive/action sports (ie. wakeboarding) and hope to continue to shoot as much racing as possible. I'm going to try and get to the 24 hrs of Daytona again in 2010 and maybe some vintage weekends at Mosport and Watkins Glen.

Anyways, here is a pic from turn 4 at Mosport... (was taken with rented 300mm f2.8 af-s vr lens).



I'll post some more pics later this week.

Craig

I was thinking the same thing, so much is said about capturing motion instead of freezing the action, but here you captured something that I think you rarely see with that heat haze as Max put it. Great shot.
