  • XZ-1 ... Pushing it !

    This is where I needed the E-3 + 50-200mm

    A highlight for motorbike fans ... this one's for you Chevvy ...
    Can just see you mixing it with these Yami daredevils on your inverted Ducati

    These riders are brothers who turned it on for the crowd at the Red Hill Show

    The XZ-1 continues to amaze, as do these two.
    The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

      Thanks img1. It's breathtaking to watch. One hopes never to read about one of their feats having ended in tragedy.

              Impressive photos in all manners (includes stunt, camera & operator).

              We don't (& didn't) go to the Sydney Royal Easter show with our kids because of the crouds but have taken them (in the past when they were kids) to the Hawkesbury Agriculture show instead & these guys (or others like them) were there doing their impressive stunts. They are certainly worth watching. I'll have to check the dates for the next one to see if I can get impressive photos like this too.

                Thanks for the rap, Ross. As said to begin, this was a job for the E-3 with a longer lens.
                If you get to see them I'm sure that DM of yours (or whatever name Oly was trying to call it?)
                with one of your arsenal of long lenses would get way better shots than mine.

                To put you on the showground and to conclude the set, here is a wider view of the event.

                        Sorry Chevvy - Must have broken the thread between cut and paste. The thread was to this post.
