  2. Hi Mike, I have re-uploaded all the pictures (except one). I hope that will fix the problem. Have a good day.

    We could use some cooler weather here. Great photos, Walton.

    The End of Winter

    The annual dog races are my last major task before spring. Now we wait for the river to thaw, and our short summer fishing season to take place. These are local teams that are run by local mushers. Fewer and fewer are raced, as expenses mount for keeping the dogs. I missed part of the activities on Saturday, but did take photos of the end of the women's races this afternoon. This musher is trying to reduce some drag by crouching down on the sled runners. There are a lot of long tongues hanging out as these dogs get to the finish line. I assume most people know, but for those who don't, dogs "pant" to get rid of excess heat. Crossing the finish line: A wider view. This is the Andreafsky River, about 40 yards from the shore. Just lst week there was an abundance of water over this area, as our temperatures approached 40F. As I suspect many of you know, it is somewhat challenging to take photos when everything is white, and you have a very bright sun. Most of these images started out at a PLUS 1.0 to 1.6. And this is the dog transport sled. Not exactly like the mushers who run the Iditarod.

    Thank you all for the feedback. I agree about the lack of contrast in the tents. I used the wrong filter. I have many other pics of this place in color too.

    In late afternoon we went ashore to view some penguin rookeries.

    We spent several hours moving slowly through the brash ice (loose floating pieces of ice) of the Lemaire Channel. There were many opportunities for photographers and our painter.
  12. Daniel, that worked but it’s a bit clunky thanks.
  13. Yes by today's standard the noise level of motorsport events are considered more as a pollution than an annoyance. On a long run the Formula E (electric) should be the real modern evolution of car racing but there is still a very strong (and machismo?) resistance. I hope everything is returning to normal at your place. Have a good night!
  14. You can try through the "Headliners" link presented on the Home page. It should work better. If not I will try to configure the pictures via another option. Thanks for your understanding.
  15. Daniel most of your photos are not loading!
  16. I can understand your comments about the noise. F1 is in Melbourne this weekend and I could hear the GT3 cars at a distance of about 7 km yesterday morning. Glad I didn't need to work over the weekend as my office is even closer. And don't mention the traffic disruption - if I take the car to work my normal route is through Albert Park!

    On the other hand, if the tents weren't in the frame I would like the black and white approach you have here.

    I like the black and white dramatic rendition of your picture. The sky and the mountain are simply overshadowing the human presence.

    + one for colour!
  21. Yes his pictures (and post processing) are simply excellent.
  22. We had the same problem in Canada with the only live TV coverage during the Canadian Grand Prix but we use to look on BBC coverage rediffuse very late sunday night by the CBC (Canadian Broadcast Corporation). Back in 1968 I have the chance to have seen the excellent John Frankenheimer movie Grand Prix which its photography and cinematography has been very inspiring through times. For sure as Canadians we were following the meteorical ascension of late Gilles Villeneuve and later on of his very talented son Jacques Jr. But too of my favorite pilots at the time were Keke Rosberg and Nigel Mansell. But I must add that except for very few of them we like to follow the careers of all the F1 pilots of the time. It was like big family. We love also to follow the car concepters like Gordon Murray or Gérard Ducarouge. I am still following the Formula 1 actualities and drivers like as Kimi Raikkonen or Daniel Ricciardo among few others although I don't really appreciate the present format (circuits, cars, classification rules, etc.) of the races. But the passion (to my own surprise) is still remaining ...

    I agree. Colour would be better.

    I’m with Dallas, the bright colours of the tents and climbers will contrast well with the bright white of the snow and the deep blue in the sky.

    Excellent composition (as always), but I think this shot calls for colour. The tents seem to get lost in the foreground as there is little contrast between them and the surrounding rocks.
  26. Great cover, Daniel! I was born in January '68 so my F1 awareness might have been a little cloudy then! In South Africa we only got television in 1976 and then IIRC the SABC only used to cover the local GP. I recall witnessing the terrible death of Tom Pryce and the fire marshal at Kyalami in the '77 SA GP, which they seemed to show repeatedly in slow motion. In the 80's they started to show more races on local TV and my Dad was a huge fan of Nigel Mansell back in those days. My interest, as mentioned, only really began in about '94, the year Senna was killed. I saw that there is a series about F1 now on Netflix so I watched the first episode last night (was around last year's season) and it takes you behind the scenes. The cars now look rather silly with those halo things around the cockpit, in my opinion. @Chris Fabbri has also covered a few F1 races in Brazil.

    From my 2014 trek. Thank you for looking.
  28. Thank you for your nice appreciation. Motor-racing photography have always been a big challenge that require a lot of dedication. But it can be very rewarding if you really persist in your effort to get satisfactory results. My first real Formula 1 souvenir has occur at the dead of Jim Clark in January 1968 during a Formula 2 race in Germany (I was a youngster at the time!). But like you I really start to enjoy following the series with the arrival of Gilles Villeneuve (father of Jacques Jr) in 1977-1978. The racing conditions have now evolute in a way that fans and local photographers are contained in far stands and are not allowed to be in very close contact with the racing participants. The races are by far less risky and all the circuits have been much standardized. For your amusement I have found a front cover I have done for Pole Position magazine showing Michael Schumacher in its Benetton racing car at the Montreal Canadian Grand Prix. Thanks again for all your help, Daniel M

    • Flash Memories from an autosport photographer (1987-2001)
      Many people that I have known during my active fifteen years in motorsport photography were very curious about the "glamour" side of the job (assignment). But .... almost all of us (mainly men along with a few courageous women) were mainly motorsport fanatics that are loving at first auto racing and ... were dreaming to be themselves real racers.

      I spent the last two weeks of January aboard the Hans Hansson in Antarctica. This was a photography expedition organised by Visionary Wild, whose founder Justin Black was one of the professional tutors.
