Photo of the event or a lucky shot?
Having spent a long time sorting through the photos I took on the CRA Winter Challenge, it's sometimes the 'grab' shot that 'works' the best. On the penultimate day, having survived the blizzard on the Col de Rousset, and after a rushed bit to eat at the lunch halt we shot off to find somewhere in the afternoon, before dusk fell.
As I think I've mentioned previously I spent the last two days in the company of the film crew, and we were trying to find some snow, but not get into blizzard territory again. So how high should we go? that was the dilemma, plus the usual problem, where can we park off the road? compounded by the snow!
Anyway to cut a long story short, we got some shots/filming at low level, then we saw a good gap in the field and carried on further up the mountain. We managed eventually to find somewhere to park, just before a hairpin, and it was whilst shooting them coming round the corner I glanced over my shoulder, and saw a gap between the trees and 'snatched' the shot below.
And luckily it's the winning car, the Porsche 356 of Jan Ebus and Jan Berkhof. To me it typifies what was the Winter Challenge 2014.
