Default A trip to the Rockies and some racing

Ok, the racing has nothing to do with the rockies but I am too lazy to start another thread

Last of the rockies trip:

The circle of life:



In your face:




And the horse racing ... first time ever to be able to take some shots... all of them at ISO2500 (OM-D, 40-150mm):






Enjoy !

Gilles

nice shots, I especially like the last racing shot, the expression on the jockey's face and the lighting gives it a nice touch of drama, good work!

Gorgeous landscape in that first image. Let me guess, you went straight up that wall in the second picture?

I do miss shooting the thoroughbreds, but it did save me lots in gas, food and betting funds not going this year. I have no doubt the E-M5 with the 9 frames er second is quite capable of capturing the subject very well. I can tell from the shadows you were dealing with some tough lighting conditions.

Thanks Steven

I really like the OM-D ... and I will like it better with the battery grip

I still use my E-30 (which is working better with the 4/3 lenses and I don't need high ISO).

Great shots Folob. Too bad that car got in to the one photo.

Yes I know ...

I was very close to the finish line but I was shooting against the sunset and there was a lot of (young) people on the fence watching the races.... so I had to stay where I was.

That car is one of the price for some race or draw at the attached casino... So they put it where everybody can see it.

C'est la vie !
