Pics of the week 17-22…

Standard

I have been quite lazy recently and not taken many pictures… this is due to numerous reasons… weather, tired, weather… you get the (no pun intended) picture…

I have taken a few though so I thought I would post them up… I think I will try and make a little bit more of an effort to take some random images… seems like a decent way to keep on top of my photography skills (what there is of them lol) so I might start a regular ‘pics of the week’ post (although it may well turn into pics of the month!) so I can try and keep both my skills and blog updated (for the one or two regular visitors I get… and by regular I mean after I have sent them the link! 🙂 )

Couple of snaps of the girls in the garden…

This one is a handheld shot with the 6D rather than the 50D and bracket…

To round up I really fancied a sunset… I was too lazy to go on the clearest night of the past week which I am kicking myself about… was providing taxi services for my youngest that night and didn’t take my camera with me… golden to blue hour was glorious…. ah well… I went out on the Sunday night instead and grabbed these…

Castle Combe 2017 Race 3

Standard

After the rather nasty off in race 2 you would be forgiven to think that it might take a while to get things sorted… as it happens… no it didn’t!…

After a rather impressive turn around from Craig at Darkside Customs we had the car back looking straighter than it did from the last excursion into Tower corner…
Castle Combe 2017 Race 3

The day started off ok… weather was looking iffy at best and then it started spitting with rain in qualy… Bill got 7th on grid with a 1.16.320… not too bad considering the greasy track and a few nerves hoping the brakes will hold up this time…

Not everything was going as well though… Keepo had started the weekend with issues managing to break off a bleed nipple from one of the front calipers… after sorting that out the alternator bracket came adrift and the oil cooler split during qualy… keepo was not having a good day..

This was compounded by the heavens opening and then would you believe it!!.. the solar panel farm caught fire!!!..

It was a very eventful day… the race proved to be even more eventful… very very very wet but Bill did good… held 3rd place right up to the last lap… then aquaplaned into… you guessed it… Tower!!!…

There was a short period of panic and disbelief as the commentators weren’t exactly sure what was happening with car 55 at Tower so we walked back to the paddock only to find a very straight looking Badgerwagon parked up… thankfully there was a new ‘tyre’ wall installed at Tower that pretty much cushioned his entry in… there was a small dent in the rear from contact with another car on the way in and a broken door mirror…

Best bit of it was that he finished 3rd in class after making his way back on track!!… result 🙂

Anyway… as the weather was crap and I care far too much about my camera kit I didn’t take too many pics… here are a few of the ones I did though…
