Default RC Boats (although some want to be planes!)

I've not posted in this section for a long time.... too many weddings/portraits on the go.

I was out at the local lake shooting some birds (feathered!) and in the afternoon the local RC boat club runs so decided to capture a few shots of them as well.

Realised I stripped the exif, these were taken with a 7D and Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 with 1.4x TC at max zoom shutter speed between 1/160s and 1/250s to get some movement in the shots.

3 Take off.........


4 ............. but realised it couldn't really fly!

Thanks Simon and Tom. Was good to shoot some action and I love #3. I've actually offered it to the company which makes the boats as it is (IMHO) better than anything they have on their site. Will wait and see what they say

Love the last three pictures. Is there anything you can't photograph? Everything I see of yours is great and inspires me to want to shoot more and more.

Thanks for sharing
