A Bit Of Powerboat Racing

There was Powerboat racing in the harbour yesterday and I thought it would be a good chance to test out my Nikon 80-200 f2.8 lens which has a pretty serious amount of fungus in it with my Nikon D90. Luckily the light was on my side so I didn’t have to worry too much about lens flare.

As we were walking to a good vantage point the race started and on the second turn two of the boats collided resulting in one of them overturning… I saw it happen but didn’t have a camera out so only got the aftermath.

Anyway I was reasonably happy with the way the lens handled and even sniped a couple of portrait shots of the crowd 🙂
