Boring Bored? Photos...

On Sunday the 10th I went to watch the final day of the New Zealand round of the World Rally Championship. Of course I took my 33, and even though I left home at 6am on a Sunday I didn't take the main highway. I had great fun on the empty winding open road sections of the B route instead, turning the music right down to hear the car. At one point the sun was rising and as I was crossing a bridge I noticed a bit of fog about. So I pulled off onto an unsealed side road to get some photos.
I've uploaded them and kept them at quite a large size (most 1280*960, approx. 150-200kb). As an example:
Some of the shots are quite alike because I wanted to make sure I got some which weren't affected by lens flares, or out of focus etc.
I still got some duds (GRNFLARE, GRNFLAR2, SPOILT1 and SPOILT2 being the worst) but overall I'm happy.
All can be accessed in the directory

I got shots of WRC cars too, but there are no Alfas so that's off topic. Incase Rally NZ hasn't screened overseas yet I won't tell you who won.
When I arrived at the first stage and parked the car, a 33 owner from came up to me and complained I nearly mowed him and his friends down as I sped by them walking to the stage. Heh heh.. oops.

Those are amazing photos Ben. Some are just like Ireland on a Spring morning.
But perhaps you should post what you think are the best of them on the 'Images' section where they can be displayed in full (not a link)

Re: Bored? Photos...

I'm just saving myself the bother of resizing the pictures and trying not to use up too much bandwidth (or I might be made to pay for it...)
I figured less people read the 33/sud/sprint forum.

Re: Bored? Photos...

Just had a look at the pics - all I can say is Wow!!! Some lovely shots there, Ben.

Can I ask where they were taken?
