VARAC Vintage Grand Prix

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

 

Track side today covering this event. Brutal day for walking and general exhaustion.  Was stupid enough to think I would get some exercise!  :lol: Should have just taken the cars to the various spots.  Would have been so much easier.

 

Small sampling of about 2000 images taken today.  These are all with the Nikon 500mm PF lens.  I cannot sing praises enough for this lens.  It is simply unbelievable. Truly.  I found absolutely nothing wrong with it.  I can't even think of a nit .... ok, its expensive. There. Amazing performance.  I did not miss on focus lock all day. Any images I deleted were through my own errors, like aiming wrong, snapping too late etc.  This lens is a marvel.

 

Judge for yourself.

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

​Film: That tangible image that you can see and hold.
