|(1) The Tour Auto in April 2014 on the road to Chablis. A Lancia Fulvia leads an Alfa Romeo.|
(1) The first motor sport event I covered for Rouen-les-AFX.blogspot.com was the Tour Auto back in April 2014. This shot, above, was taken on the road towards Chablis. I got down into a ditch so that I was reasonably low compared to the cars and panned at a medium shutter speed so that I got a little movement into the picture. A classic "on the road with the Tour Auto" shot with the rape seed field giving colour in the background and the iconic sixties cars in the foreground. This was taken at a time when I was looking for a new hobby and suddenly that day I had found one. At this stage I just had a Panasonic Lumix compact camera, but it gave me enough control to be a little more than point and shoot.
