Targa Day 3 – Its all about the flames and the scenery
The idea for today was to go out and shoot some really nice scenic images out in the Tasmanian country side. Today’s stages were centred around the area just south of Devonport. Some very nice country side in that area and it made for some awesome pictures.
We headed off to a favorite spot from last year next, in the area of Mole Creek
The cars come down the hill out of the Forest into the open and makes for a very nice backdrop
For the last few days I have been trying to capture nice images of the flames that are emitted from the back of the two Lamborghini’s of Kevin Weeks and Jason White.
Just haven’t been able to capture it up until now
The spot I found this afternoon I had the feeling there would be a good chance to capture the flames.
I was not disappointed the flames that the car of Jason White’s were awesome and made for a great shot
That night they had the usual Targa fest on in the heart of Launceston city, they close off roads around the CBD and put all the cars on display.
Its a great opportunity for the public to get up close to the cars and drivers
Big day tomorrow as we head across to the West Coast
