On Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph the 2005 addition of "Thunder on the Beach" in Wildwood, NJ. It was an extremely bright, warm day. A far cry from last year when it was cold and rainy. The sponsers of the show liked the photos that I had submitted to them last year, so this year they sent me free tickets and gave me a pass to shoot anywhere on the race course during the event. I shot over 1000 pics in 2 days using my D2h with an 80-400 VR and a D50 with a 18-70 DX. We had a great time and David enjoyed the behind the scenes action and getting to meet the drivers. The other photographers covering the event were using Canon Digital Rebels. I felt a little better with my Nikon Gear. The 80-400 really did pretty good with focus speed but I found that I was shooting at the shorter range most of the time. Here are a few of the photos all take with a D2h and 80-400 VR.
