Mini Story
Lens: Sigma 50-500mm Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Goulburn 
Posted By: Dan1005, 04-10-2011, 04:06 PM

Recently purchased my K5 and Sigma lens set. Its first outing was to a race meeting at wakefield park in Goulburn. Managed to get some good shots despite the driving rain making things difficult and soaking one through to the bone within a few minutes.

My favourite series from the weekend is this lot, about a little mini who lost his way.

(watch the red mini)

Ohh No, Im off the road!

Hey guys, thanks for the reply. It was a fun time despite the rain. Couldn't work out what that nose piece was for though, its confusing.

Dave.. Here is a photo of a car, made to look like the car from cars... (what a great sentence lol)

Actually gives an idea of how wet it was.
