Hydroplane boat races on the Niagara River. Camera mounted on tripod and lens pre-focused to area approximate to where I guessed the boats would be. These boats are both fast and loud.

Cropped & edited using Elements 9.

Wow, that must have been something to see. Like the spray in the last one.

I've seen one of these races before, and yes, they are LOUD! And being how fast they are, you did a great job of capturing the action.

Nice shots Zman!. Nice to see some more boat racing on here. I shoot boats every chance I get. We've got a regatta coming up in about 4 weeks at Rocky Fork Lake outside of Hillsboro, OH. I plan on being there with my trusty K200D.
