Talking My Photos from the Thunderbird Rally, Canada

Well, i am home, back in the UK. I cant sleep at all so here are some of my favourite shots from the TBird Rally. I am a lucky SOB being able to do this and having such great friends over in Seattle.
Its hard to believe just 12 months ago i didnt know either Jamie or Richard, amazing what friends you can make from a meeting aranged on the internet because of a common interest in Subaru's and Motorsport. I hope you enjoy the photo's.

Just after tech inspection, it's -12 celcius, bit nippy.

Yes Jamie, stage 2 is next up. (my favourite shot of the rally)

InCar on the Frozen Lake Ice racing course, that was a lot of fun.

One of the faster sections of a TBird stage, one of the few oportunities i had to take a shot during a stage.

In transit to the start of the next regularity, even the transit roads were ice and snow covered.

Running alongside yet another frozen lake on the way to stage start.

Phew, we finished the rally in one piece and had a huge amount of fun along the way, i think the smile sums up the weekend, it was a lot of fun and an experience i will never forget.

Thanks for the rally pics. What kind of camera did you use? Looked like fun. I love driving in the snow.

Thanks chuck, still all jet lagged hence checking the board for 5 mins before having another crack at some sleep.

My camera is a Kodak DC215 ZOOM Digital Camera. Unlike most digital camera's it uses an optical zoom so the definition is very high.

I took the shots in the standard resolution setting to make the picture size ideal for a web site, i could have doubled the resolution.

It cost me about $300 and i used a 32MB card, this let me take over 250 photos without downloading, pretty impresive piece of kit for the money.

Glad you like the shots.

Right, back to bed, work in 3 hours, ahhhhh
