Vision in green

Photo Information
I wait ages to post a motorcycle racing photo, then submit three in swift succession. This is Honda rider Callum O'Shea approaching Druids Bend, Brands Hatch on March 3 2012 - the first pure bike meeting I've attended since September 12 1976, oddly. The last was organised by the Fleetwood & District Motorcycle Club at Longridge, near Preston (sadly defunct since the late 1970s and now posing as the Beacon Fell View caravan park). Lens: Sigma 150-500mm f5-6.3

Excellent shot, you must be well pleased with it.
Best wishes,

Very well captured. Nicely placed in the frame with some space on the left to go into and interesting angle to the tarmac. Good background too.
