    Nah, hanging out the window with the camera.

    great shot dave..... the question is though, who was driving! :-)

    Also i expect that you weren't going as fast as the shot appears to be...you don't need much movement to generate that 'fast' look!

    well done!

    You were really hanging out there!
  • David de Groot said:
    Lea was driving, so I don't know exactly how fast we were going, but I'd guess 20-30kph.

    Not as far as it seems actually. The wide angle lens tends to distort distance perception in a shot like this.

    I came around the corner doing my usual 50 or so, saw you were going to take a photo, so slowed down to 40ish, you said 'if I wanted you to slow down I would ask' (silly me, thinking you were going to take a photo of the pretty horsies :-P) so I sped back up (*cough* no one read the lat long and check out the speed limits there, ok?) I think by the time you were taking this I had dropped down to about 45 for the usual reasons in that area. I do need a bit of speed for the hill.
    So probably around 45

    Aha, the "roundabout" that you say isn't really a "roundabout"... =P

    you've got to watch the speed on those roads out samford way...thats where I had my first accident (yes I said first but I swear I'm better now).. so I think doing 45 is actually quite slow for how fast most people drive around some of those roads.
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah see by that spot I'm thinking of changing down to 2nd so I'd be definitely under 40kph.

    Yep, that's the one :)

    Hmmm, methinks you might be referring to me...

    lol
    (picturing David hanging out of the open window with one foot on the steering wheel for this one)
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe wrong side of the car for that David :-P
  • benefit of hindsight said:
    ah yes, you people also drive on what the rest of the world call the "wrong side" of the road :-p
  • David de Groot said:
    Bah! This from someone that originally hailed from the UK ;-)
  • benefit of hindsight said:
    which is why I said "also" :o)

    Ah well it was almost midnight when I commented...
