Description

JUST SHOT TODAY FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT. THIS IS STAGE 6 OF THE 2013 U.S.A.PRO CHALLENGE. THERE ARE 16 WORLD CLASS TEAMS IN THIS RACE FROM AROUND THE WORLD. THERE WERE 128 RACERS. THIS IS STAGE 6 OF 7 TOTAL. IN THE 7 STAGES THEY CLIMB OVER 40 THOUSAND FEET. THE ROUTE HAPPENED TO GO PAST MY LOWER FIVE ACRES SO I TOOK MY POLARIS RANGER AND SET UP IN THE BACK. THAT WAY A HAD A GREAT WAY TO PAN THE RACERS. I WAITED ABOUT AN HOUR AND HAD ABOUT A BLOCK OF VISIBILITY. I HAVE NEVER DONE SPORTS BEFORE SO I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. WHAT A PARADE OF NEWS, SHERRIFS AND STATE PATROL IN FRONT SO I GOT READY. TURNS OUT I HAD A TOTAL OF ABOUT 10 SEONDS TO SHOOT AND THEY WERE GONE.THESE RACERS WERE VERY CLOSE TO THE FRONT OF THE PACK. THE ENTIRE PACK WAS ABOUT 25 YARDS LONG. DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE GOING VERY FAST BUT THEY WERE FLYING. I COULD HAVE PARKED BY MY LOWER ENTRYWAY AND SHOT DOWN THE STREET AND GOT MORE RACERS AND FRAMES BUT I WAS REALLY LOOKING FOR NO ROAD, CARS OR PEOPLE IN THE FRAME. THIS FRAME WAS WITH MY NEIGHBORS HAY FIELD AND COTTONWOOD TREES IN THE BACKGROUND. I DID GET ABOUT 25 GOOD FRAMES WITH THE LEADERS AS WELL BUT THEY DID NOT HAVE GREEN ON. LOOKING BACK AT THIS ONE NOW I REALLY LIKE THE FORGROUND AND BACKGROUND. F5.6 1/5000 840MM
