  1. Dirt Track Racing at the famous Lodi Cycle Bowl in Lodi CA.
    Man I really miss riding these things. Handle bar to handle bar at 80-90mph going sideways is fun.
    I was lucky enough to capture a few of the guys doing their thing.
    First the little guys---I wanta be just like dad--:smile:

    Love it. I'd love to get out there one of these days. Lots of history in that little bowl. :biggrin:

    Good timing, David. I would suggest less DOF next time out, to blur the background. Or try panning to blur the background.
     
  5. Jim,
    Good point. I was using a 80-400VR and should have probably used it wide open with a different shutter speed. This particular venue does not need a long lens. The shots of the pros were taken at very short range about three feet off the inside of the track as they were coming through turn 3.
