I took this at Sweet lamb a few years a go, it's a cracking place to photograph rallying, I positioned myself on a straight that had a slight hump which made the guys catch a bit of air.

A cracker shot. I wonder if you get the wheels turning with a slower shutter speed?

Thanks John, the wheels are slightly blurred, If you shoot slower speeds the whole car blurs as they are moving around 70-80 mph coming towards me, they only get air for a brief time so you need a relatively fast shutter speed to catch them .

Yup after admiring the detail my first thought was pity the wheels seem frozen given you usually have that well sorted, then I red your reply to John.... AHHHHH !  Easy to be a critic for sure..(-:

Haha Geedee, these guys are flying along and I just don't mean getting air, some of the speeds they get to is ridiculous.

I once got airborne going over a humpbacked bridge, getting airbourne was a doddle I just put my foot down,easy peasy. The problem was the landing, my shock absorbers nearly came through the car body and the engine nearly dropped out of the car lol.

Been there done that at Ballaugh Bridge on two wheels, it helps to land on the rear wheel...(-: It is so much easier on four wheels till you watch those WRC guys and the distances they FLY.... !!!

 

Watched an Australian (?) movie years back where the photographer drove the rally route and hit a hump that launched his car... sp logically that is where he set up his camera. First guy through grabbed air, rolled right out of the car did not break stride in the process and decked the photographer....(-:  Be careful where you stand Chimpy..(-:

Geedee, I've had a few narrow squeaks in my life but I still have a few of my nine lives left haha, in my time I've been in a gas explosion that blew me up and my ear drums and left me with bad tinnitus and ive been set on fire by a faulty gas fire. Haha

Photography is relatively safe haha, saying that a moto x bike nearly got me once, I was shooting and I didn't relise what happened till one of my mates told me.
