    G'day mate

    A beaut case of 'whoopsie' by the looks of it .... I hope the driver managed to recover and continue to the finish line
    The sharpness and mono treatment take the image into the 'bluddy-great-pic' category

      Cheers Phil. Yeah he recovered it no problem. Or to be more accurate I suspect, it wouldn't tip over any more. The grinding helped scrub speed too I suspect

    That is a ripper shot Steve, the look on the drivers' face says it all. Although I suspect he's done that slide more than once in his life. Those tyres must have some decent pressure in them, absolutely no deflection on that front right.

      Oh yes, good spot on the tyres. Never noticed that before.

    What a shot!
    I'm sure a colour version would also look dramatic, but I can't see that it would compete with this
    Compulsive photographic dabbler.

      Thanks! If I recall, the background metalwork looked a bit hideous in colour

    I love this image, full of drama, and the facial expression says it all.
    Conversion to mono completes it for me.
    Well caught, and thanks for showing.
    Cheers, Brad.

      Lovely drama captured at the right moment. The BW is the icing on the cake.
