Xmas Hols!!!

So i just had to get out of the city and head north up the coast to some ideallic beaches and just sit, not do anything... just sit. The fact it was around 35degrees here in Perth and too hot to even lie on the bed made it easier to do, so i packed (more like threw shit in) my recently acquired 1981 F100 ambulance and took off, little did i realise that of the two cameras i took that the main one went flat as i left it on! so the D7000 crop was it for the weekend. not that i felt like taking photos anyways, i took more on the last night at the Pinnacles then the whole week around the towns i was staying in!
which reminds me, i headed up to Lancelin on NYE and stayed on the beach, went to the local pub and slept in the carpark so i didn't have to drive! then around 3pm when it was 35 i drove the 80kms up to Cervantes and hung around there for two more days till i came back down to the Pinnacles on the 3rd and stayed in the carpark till 5:30am and drove back home. One of the reasons i stayed in the van is that's one of the reasons i bought it, to go away on weekends and not have to set up a tent, just fold down the couch and sleep where-ever! also useful for towing, which i hope to do once i have a car ready!
So i did take some pics of the beaches while i was away, and some car stuff along with some poor excuses for night photography, too hot to really get in to anything but at least i took something, really lacking for motivation with cameras these days. see how the new year goes eh!
ALL Photos are Clikable to enlarge!!!!!

Rally sprints

Local company McRae motorsports do some khana events on their site down at the Motoplex dragway, using the outer roads and some of the bottom end of the drag strip they have a really good course using all the things a fast car could need, last week their normal meet was also used to sort out some of the competitors for this years Targa West rally, and to give sponsors some time in the hot seat for there efforts in sponsoring some of these cars. i went down for an hour to do some panning practice as it's been a while since i last did any motorsport... conclusion.... i need new lenses!!! relying on 10yr+ lenses is not good for sharp pans! maybe once i've fixed some of my cars i'll set some money aside....HA!
Anyway, heres some of the results ;)
