Default Best Job

Hi all, another pic from the MotoGP. It may not actually be the best job in the world, but on the surface it looks pretty cool.

Yes, I also love that huge lens!

Big Dawg would love that one. Nice shot.

I don't think I'd have the door open or my foot hanging out the door hanging onto what looks like a very heavy lens! Yikes!

The kangaroo on the side is cool, too.

I can assure you, that lens has to weigh a good bit. I had a 70-200/2.8L which was probably about 1/2 the size of that one and one night of shooting with that and my arms would be sore the next day...

Got to know your balance in a job like that one that's for sure I would of been able to do it back when I was on the lighter side...I loved the high places that I have seen its how I have gotten up there that matters! Great shot down under...
