close quarters action photography—rally

open access…

I had an opportunity to photograph a rally race held near Polcenigo, PN in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy. I only got to spend about an hour watching, but really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed open access to the track. I don’t have a tele-photo lens for my camera that’s good for photographing action from a distance, so this guerilla style of photography suited me quite well. It’s definitely easy to see how people end up getting hit at rally races, though. I could see the drivers’ eyes I was so close lol. Lots of fun-loving spectators as well…I saw bottles of wine being carried around in cargo pockets, which was pretty great. Anyway, short text post for today. Hope you enjoy the photos!
