Wanted to get a good shot of water spray so with it being dull as dishwater today i had to go to iso 1600 and 1/2000 lens wide open.

Most of the time my brolly kept us dry, ever tried to pan a 100mph target and keep your brolly over your head? LOL

i did spend a lot of time with the lens cloth. the canon didn't mind the rain nor the lens i just made sure it was not put away in the bag till it dried out overnight.

did another track day yesterday, kept dry till i rode home but very dark, the only sunshine was on the dinner break.

posted another shot in the "wheelie" post of a guy with metal kneepads very naughty. got him on 3 passes and posted the best. My panning is improving at 350-400/s i can get more sharp shots but iso 1600 is usable if i had a longer lens. cropping a 55mm lens shot i get more noise etc than i can live with.

many thanks for the comment and encouragement, a car day tommorow so i can get more practice. forcast cloudy. and would you belive rain for the bank holiday Monday, and i'd hoped to go to a local fair with the RAF flying Bah.

regards
