2013 Round the Island Race Panorama by Jason Swain. I woke up bright and early this morning at 4.40am to shoot this Panorama of the annual ‘Round the Island Race’ on the Isle of Wight (although even that time was a virtual lay-in compared to the competitors and marshals etc, who all had to be ready by 4am for the 5am race start time!)
Anyway, the early start wasn’t a problem, it fitted in pretty well with my current lack of sleeping pattern anyway, and instead of felling like i was missing out on not sleeping, it actually felt great to be out and about and shooting so early.
The weather was fair with a decent Northerly Wind, so the boats were really shifting, and although this isn’t as moody as the panoramas i created during last years race, I still love the light and mood and the hypnotic effect of all those boats.
Shot with the Sigma 50-500mm telephoto lens on a Canon 6d Camera body.
