Plans to head off to wetherby races to shoot have been scuppered for today so I`m in with an old  racing themed shot re-worked. One furlong to go. If I get the chance to go to Wetherby tomorrow I may aim for a better shot.

I am not going to have a lot of time over the weekend, so I took this shot quickly this week, I am in with a Long Way across.

Still trying to get the shot I finally decided on as my 'big idea'. I have a back up if that comes to nought (as is looking increasingly likely).

I found it very difficult to get 'what I wanted,' and have posted three entries. (Two removed.)

Today, for the first time in months, I felt like taking my camera for a walk, to see what I could get. The weather was far from enticing (anticyclonic gloom), but hey, I was out again, and looking for victims/targets.

Not many people about, so I thought to shoot some distant runners for the competition. Not sure if this one is distant enough, so I decided she is a long distance runner, to cover all eventualities.

Editing, surrounded by Beethoven's 5th piano concerto, followed by his 5th symphony; great rousing, humpty tumpty music! Very uplifting, just what I need.

I am now in with my Runner (Long Distance).

I managed to get the kind of shot that I was after, although not exactly as well done as I would have liked. The trouble was I waited for nearly half an hour and this was the only truck that went past:

Well, at least you had the weather. I was hanging around to catch a runner in the grey murk. But it was not cold, so not too bad.
