    nice job by 105 doubling back to cover his buddy who went down on a small hump that was not quite a jump given the turn right after it so it was a tad tricky.

    took a swing by Rt 23A to the Kaaterskill creek at the U turn to try the tripod slow shutter thing.

    what goes around comes around. Lucas's good deed gets rewarded with one for the ages as today I bagged what might be my best picture in 4 years of shooting MX with DSLR's. Lucas Ganz on the gas. Old 105. Part of my crew when I attend the local races. His dad and I are friends and we've been to Unadilla and Southwick as moto buddies several times in the past few years since I've returned to the sport as a very content spectator.

    Today the stars aligned with the right place, right time, right lens, right shutter speed, right aperture, and the right panning speed.

    First turn action at the new track for real on Sunday, yesterday was practice.

    Face up facing the roost and not backing off. He finished 2nd to his big brother Mike #106.

    Something tells me he'll use this for his new profile picture on FB..

    and while you're bullshitting he's still ascending. :eek1

    that is just some stupid jump on some stupid local track and the top kids on the mini's are going higher and farther :huh than any jump I ever did in my so called life.

    you better back up when the big kids with white plates come through. :deal

    Great pictures Nachflug! Thanks for sharing!

    It's nice to meet someone who like MX as much as me. I sure do miss it!

    That really is a great (sharp!) shot.

    Out of curiosity, how long a lens are you shooting this stuff with, and roughly what shutter speed/aperture? I dabble in photography (I am not this good, though), and I am always curious what works for others.
