Bank Holiday Weekend (out and about in the rain and hail!)

Spent yesterday walking around the Donington race track with David so he could take photos of classic cars.  It rained, it hailed, it was very cold, and when I asked a young chap in the cafe for a filter coffee he said 'what's a filter coffee?'.  I think he should seriously reconsider his career choice.  I did manage to get some photos, weather and strange customer service notwithstanding.

David does his paparazzi thing...

At the Donington Classic...
My new car :O)

Ferrari


Dodge...


Trees 2
I was determined to have a go
at one of those tree shots where you
pan the camera up and down whilst shooting.
Didn't have my tripod so it's a bit wobbly, 
but still quite like the effect!

Oh no! Hail and classic cars are not a good mix! I hope they all (especially "your" Ferrari) were unscathed.

The Dodge is quite a contrast to the Ferraris. Is it meant to symbolize dodging hail and paparazzi and dealing with dodgy cafe baristas? ;-)

You did a great job with the final photo! It looks very otherworldly!

Love your photos, but funny seeing your coat and mittens when it is already so hot in Texas. You did a lovely job on the "panning" shot.

Awful weather to be at a car show but at least it provided you with some unique photos of classic cars. Sure wish I had a Ferrari. :D I'm very struck by the shot of the woods, fascinating.

A wonderful series Barbara!
I especially love the last one.
Happy Sunday to you!

Ooooh! I love that effect with the trees! And, the raindrops on the black Ferrari photo is fabulous!
