Photographer's Note

Okay, it's not a taxi. It's from the opening stage of the Madeiran Rally, part of the European Rally Championship. This stage is held in the town centre of Funchal, the capital. It's very well supported by the locals who climb to every vantage point including tops of roofs and lorries.
I was on a corner and had to listen for the cars coming, prefocus on a section of the road and then panned the car as it raced past. I used a slow shutter speed for blur and used 2nd synch flash to add a bit of sparkle to the bodywork.
It's not as easy to take as it looks this but a bit of fun all the same.
