Pix Of The Day: Unexpected Victorian Excitement

When clicked, thumbnails popup enlarged versions of the images.
We often visit the state of Victoria, Australia, virtually speaking of course, to enjoy the resolutely ordinary images of life in Warrnambool as portrayed by Bruce Henderson on the WarrnamboolCAM.com web site. The headline and first picture looked promising: Wangoom, Framlingham nature reserve, and the Hopkins River. Winter rains have swollen the river to its highest level in ten years, however, so suddenly today's planned entry became something more dramatic than we expected.
On This Day In 2002: Gold Panning in Georgia - Wed 18 Sep 2002
This, Ladies and Gentlemen, is Gold Standard panning! If you have ever used the panning technique to swing the camera so that a fast moving subject is captured pin sharp against a blurred background, then you will know that it is not as easy as the instruction manuals make it sound. Click the picture for the original, unsullied by the usual compression I apply for a fast download. This fine example comes from Cyber Motorsports coverage of the 2001 'Petit le Mans' event at the Road Atlanta Motor Sports Center in Georgia, USA. Earl & Gail Cook, otherwise know as LaserSol, are the husband and wife team behind this and many other interesting sites. The 2002 Petit Le Mans is scheduled for 9-12 October, so look out for more action shots then.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
