Today the weather was good, the sun was shining and the races were on at Zandvoort race track. Being naive, I just assumed I could turn up and take pictures. Well sort of. I was told by a nice young man that you have to be an accredited professional photographer to be allowed to “wander” amongst the “pros” (a couple I noticed were barely 16 years old.. must be quick learners). Fortunately there are a few good spots that are not only for accredited photographers but I imagine on a busy day they would be all taken. Anyway, below are some shots I managed in the sunshine. For those needing detail I used a Canon 70-200mm F2.8 IS (mkI) with my 5d mkII. Towards the end of the day I added my 2x converter but to be honest from the vantage points available, I was too close.


Had a nice day out on Sunday in Rotterdam. Along with some fellow members of Images Photo Club under the guidance of Michiel, we took advantage of the good weather to stroll around the city taking photos of everything and anything. At 14:00 we went to the Nederlands Fotomuseum where we had a guided tour of the Chema Madoz exhibition. It was magic. The photos below are a few that I took….. In no special order.
