Kelty Coal Carrying Race
Lens: Tair 300mm PHS Camera: K-r Photo Location: Kelty, Fife ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/750s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Johndav, 06-29-2013, 10:18 AM

Annual race where the men run a course with a 50kg bag of coal (The ladies' race has a 25kg sack of coal). Shot with my Tair 300mm f4.5 at f11.
I tended to prefocus and fire off three shots rather than try to follow focus

Nice picture, good capture of the efforts and the runners....your photo....leaves just two questions, with the first one being "why on earth....?"

(The second being "got a photo of the kerrowdown running with coal?")

West Fife has a very long running association with coal mining, though all the mining today is opencast. I suspect the Kerrowdown is too sophisticated for such manual labour and would use a wheel barrow - which of course would result in disqualification
