Hi Graham, no we didnt in the end the weather goT the better of us in the end. It was so slippy everywhere my wife had fallen by this point as well. The rain stopped for about five minutes we made two seperate journeys on different days.
Sounds tough going! Rain stopping in the lakes for 5 minutes is locally known as ‘summer’ I believe.

Love that Howick shot. Mine is just down from trow point - quite a good sunset location at the moment I think
Don't know South Shields well enough but looks like there are a few interesting spots around there. Need to go for an explore sometime.

Hi, yesterday I attended my first car event this year, the Bergfahrt Königstuhl. For standing cars, I used my Leica M9.

Action pics I took with my D800 - Nikkor 4/70-200. Of 140 cars, I missed one shot (my fault :sorry: ).

So, I was very happy with my D800:

After 3,5 hours (one hour with the Leica), it was over. Cheers :

Heidelberg it seems
Yes, that 's right. The event started at the PORSCHE centre Mannheim, went to the Königstuhl near Heidelberg, and through the Odenwald.

I took the action pics sitting by the roadside a few miles after the start.

Participants were not only from Heidelberg, but the competitors typically come from an area around 70 miles from the start.

Sounds like a great event.

Yes, it was. I have been taking car pics at rallyes in my territory (70 miles around Mainz) for a few years, and I know now which events to attend.

It is a nice way of spending the day. Leaving home at 7.00 a.m., taking the pics, having lunch at a local restaurant ... ---
