Thumbs up whaddyer think?

Hi all.

Just thought that some people on FF may like 2 see this photo.

I took it when I was in the UK late last year.

The thing that surprised me was the quality of the shot considering it was taken whilst doing over 80mph on the motorway from the backseat of a (Vauxhall) Astra!

Anyways, have a squiz and c what u reckon.

(BTW, when I say quality, i mean layout etc. this photo is a highly compressed jpeg. The original looks a lot better!!)

I was going to write in my first post that it was actually in a classic ford mag. It is powered by a late model RS1800 twin cam injected donk.

Very very nice.

80mph? Wow.... You must have used a really fast shutter speed to freeze the movement like you have. But enough geek speak.
