UK - Southend - Rollercoaster

Deliberately composed to add to the feeling of disorientation. Hopefully it's easy to imagine this was taken from the rollercoaster itself. My wife uploaded a photo of the Rage Rollercoaster at Southend's Adventure Island Amusement Park about six months ago and it's gone on to become one of her most viewed photos (see here : www.flickr.com/photos/marie-g/1223410820/ ). Not that I'm competitive but I'm going to need your help catching up.

 

From Wikipedia : "Rage is a Gerstlauer Eurofighter roller coaster situated at Adventure Island in Southend On Sea, United Kingdom. It opened on 10 February 2007. It is one of the biggest investments the park has ever made. It features three inversions: a Vertical loop, Immelmann and a Zero-G roll."

 

Update : Apologies for bumping this to the front of my photostream because I know it'll annoy some of you but it's not every day that a magazine runs an interview about your photography, click here for details of my Interview in the June 2011 Issue of Advanced Photographer Magazine : www.flickr.com/darrellg/5737939741/ (Promise not to mention it again ;-)

 

Oh, and for those interested Maries shot is still a couple of thousand views ahead of me so thats another reason for bumping ;-)

 

Update, 17/09/13 : Finally overtaken her........
