The hand of God?

The hand of God?

Photo Information
A mono conversion of a pic I shot last summer. For this shot I had to stop my motorcycle on the side of a very busy highway with a foot wide shoulder, stood there with cars whipping by at crazy speeds just inches from me as I desperately tried to shoot this without getting killed. Oh the lengths we go to, to get the shot! If I had more time to think clearly and not be worrying about getting killed, I would have stopped the camera down a bit more. It was the best I could do in the circumstances.

Perhaps, had you remained to stop it down a bit more, you would have MET God. Pleased you didn't or we wouldn't have seen the piccy.

You HAD to stop and do this; spectacular sights like the one you have showed are 'of the moment'. Well done it's brilliant.

I think you've done this very well, it's a spectacular image and one that you wouldn't get the opportunity to shoot very often. The mono conversion is great too.

Quite remarkable. Well worth the risk. Probably.

A kind thank you to everyone. I appreciate the comments and the humor. It may have been risky to take the shot, but to me it was worth it because there are two more great shots that came out of the experience. I am pleased that so many photographers this one.


Regards to everyone,
