Congratulations to Jim Shepka with this image, Jim from New Hampshire, USA has won 6 months membership to The Society of International Travel & Tourism Photographers.
Jim tells us about the image ''This image was captured at the
National Hot Rod Association 'New England' Nationals held in Epping, New
Hampshire. 'Funny Cars' (as they are known) accelerate from 0-300 MPH (482 KPH)
in less that 4 seconds over 1000 yards (914 meters), while producing nearly
10,000 horsepower! This image was taken near sunset in order to capture the
'nitro' flames (they burn Nitro Methane for fuel) coming out of the headers,
which is not visible during normal daylight. I used a Canon Mark III on 'burst'
mode - ISO 1250, F5.6 @ 1/1000. Standing near the fence, the ground shakes
violently as the 'shock wave' passes you by at over 300 MPH/482 KPH. ''
