The Goodwood Festival of Speed is taking place again this weekend and I made the most of a free morning to get up to Goodwood House for the start of the event today. By setting off at 7am I was able to get to the Festival??s enormous central sculpture (a tribute to Lotus cars) in about 45 minutes and made the most of the glorious early morning light. I did take some shots of the entire sculpture but every single frame either had a photographer standing in the wrong place or the sun had dipped behind a cloud, making for some rather dull lighting. My best pictures of it were detail shots, picking out one or two of the cars, often from unusual angles. From there I headed for the Formula 1 paddock and onto the Concourse d??elegance where, once again, I found I had more success shooting details than complete cars. By midday my time was up so I started the long trek back to my car and headed off to work. All is not lost though as I get to go back again tomorrow, this time for the whole day. You have been warned ?? there will be more cars here tomorrow!
It's all in the details
