Fast Friday

I??ve had plenty of opportunities to try out my new 100-400mm lens on animals and birds over the last couple of weeks so today I thought I??d experiment with some man-made objects. I knew there was a track day going on at the Goodwood Motor Circuit today so I made a detour there on my way to the supermarket and tried my hand at some panning shots. It??s always a bit hit and miss at these track days as to whether you find any interesting cars there but today I was lucky ?? lots of old fast cars which look great out on track. I was also struck by how much everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves ?? I caught quite a few frames of people driving around the final corner of the circuit with beaming grins on their faces!

Aston Martin DB4 - James Bond eat your heart out!

This Mini was being driven very enthusiastically.

These two look like they're having fun!

Another classic, the Jaguar E-Type - fifty years old this year.

A more modern Aston. This one really jumped off the screen at me - the bodywork is so crisp while there's movement in the wheels and background. Click to enlarge for a real sense of speed!
