Shot of the Race: Bathurst 12 Hour

Bathurst, a very iconic race track with its non forgiving corners to a beautiful skyline that over looks the beautiful settlement of this country town. There are many iconic photos that are associated with this track, but you have to find a different angle to capture the undulating corners and bushland that surround it. The sun is extremely harsh throughout the middle of the day and this day was no different. It was Friday and I was trying to find a unique spot and angle to capture the cars in a different light, just below the skyline as the cars wind there way down the mountain, I wanted to use the landscape with the car to create a unique image and that I did with the beautiful Porsche.
