rowing 3

Taken during the Bedford Rowing Club's annual Quarts Sprint Regatta on the River Great Ouse, Bedford.

A good chance to attempt some panning shots which proved a challenge, as not only are the boats moving past quicker than you'd imagine, but also the rowers themselves are moving independently of the boat (unlike,say, a motorcyclist). This makes it difficult to select a fixed focus point, and there were very few "keepers".
