IAN COLLEY PHOTOGRAPHY: Blog https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog en-us (C) IAN COLLEY PHOTOGRAPHY ian.colley@optusnet.com.au (IAN COLLEY PHOTOGRAPHY) Thu, 09 Aug 2018 04:03:00 GMT Thu, 09 Aug 2018 04:03:00 GMT Mt Cotton Round 4 2018 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2018/8/mt-cotton-round-4-2018 Round 4 of the Mt Cotton Hillclimb series was held in great conditions last weekend. I managed to get to both day's competition and the weather was superb both days.

I decided to shoot from a couple of different spots this weekend so on Sunday I headed up into the bush behind the finish line to get the cars across the crest after the line and then moved to the finish line to get them going across the line. It was a nice change and there was a bit of action to be had ! The Escorts and the BMW's putting on a nice show. The best show of all though was Shane McAndrew, getting loose at the crest and finishing up in the wall after 2 rolls. Happily he got out ok with no injuries but the same can't be said for the car. Knackered !

Congrats to Dean Tighe taking out the overall win but only after a hard fought tussle with Michael von Rappard.

Here is a link to the photos. The Shane McAndrew crash in in Sunday's gallery. I have also attached a couple of photos below.

Busy weekend coming up https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2018/5/busy-weekend-coming-up All sorted and ready to go. 

The MG Car Club of Qld are holding the Qld Hillclimb Championships this weekend at Mt Cotton. I will be able to get to unofficial practise on Friday and official practise on Saturday. I have prepared the usual 16" x 20" framed gallery print for the club to raffle or give away. I'm looking forward to photographing some quick cars. Here is a quick and dirty layout of the framed print

QHC 2018 Gallery print border ds2400QHC 2018 Gallery print border ds2400

Then on Sunday it's down to Cabarita for Round 4 of the AFJSA National Jetsprint series. So far it looks like being a massive round with one of the biggest fields of entrants seen at Caba. I suspect there are quite a few internationals ready to get some local practise this weekend with the World Series just around the corner.

I have prepared a 20" x 24" framed gallery print for the Tweed Coast Jetsprint Club and have also organised ten x A3 180 piece jigsaw puzzles this meeting.

See the layout below of the gallery print and some quick pics of the jigsaw taken with my phone.

Mt Cotton Hillclimb Round 2 2018 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2018/5/mt-cotton-hillclimb-round-2-2018 Round 2 was run in much better weather than the pouring rain of Round 1. I managed to get a few hours at the track on Sunday before other commitments dragged me away from some very quick competition.

There was a large field of cars with quite a few open wheelers out to play (they must be getting some practise in for the QHC ). It was great to see so many spectators at the track too.

Photos from Sunday have been sorted and uploaded to my web site at this link

Here are a few from the day.

Round 1 Mt Cotton Hillclimb series 2018 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2018/3/round-1-mt-cotton-hillclimb-series-2018 The weather Gods were not kind for the first round of the series. I didn't make the competition on Saturday when the weather appeared to be bit better than Sunday but still not great. Sunday was a difficult day for drivers to predict when to have a run with a mix of fine overcast weather for 20 minutes and then torrential rain the next 20 minutes. The rain made for some nice photos though.

For the rest of the month the usual deal for all the photos (2400 x 1800) of your car for $50 downloaded or $65 on a DVD delivered anywhere in Australia applies. Contact me via email if you want this as it's not in my web site shopping cart.

50th Anniversary Hillclimb https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2018/2/50th-anniversary-hillclimb What a great weekend (Feb 17 and 18) enjoying the MG Car Club of Qld's 50th Anniversary of the 1st Hillclimb held at Mt Cotton. It started with a social gathering and presentation at the clubhouse on Saturday and proceeded to displays and demonstration runs on Sunday.

It was very satisfying to see the multi-shot panorama of the track I photographed a few years ago finally hanging on the wall amongst the other impressive memorabilia. Thanks Elaine Hamilton.

Sunday was a perfect day weather wise to show off some of the cars of the past at the track, including I believe, a couple of cars that ran in the first meeting 50 years ago. 

I have attached a link to photos from the event here

and added a couple below.

Mt Cotton Hillclimb Round 6 2017 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2017/12/mt-cotton-hillclimb-roun-6-2017 The last round of the Carric Accounting and Tighe Cams Mt Cotton Hillclimb series was held last weekend.

Perfect weather and a big turnout of competitors made for great competition over the weekend. Michael von Rappard produced the fastest run of the weekend with a low 38 second time.

Mt Cotton Hillclimb also played host to a special guest over the weekend with Daryl Beattie running a brand new Ford Focus RS around the track getting his times consistently down to low 48's on Sunday.

The photos have been sorted and uploaded to my website at this link  and the videos of the 1st run on Saturday have been uploaded to my YouTube channel at this link

Until the end of December I am offering the usual deal of all the photos of you car as 2400 x 1800 digital downloads for $50 or $65 on DVD and posted anywhere in Australia.

Here's a couple from Sunday's competition including a couple of close calls with the nuts.

The final round will be held at the Northern NSW Cabarita track. I'm hoping the weather will be great and we get a bumper crowd to finish off the 2017 season.

CAMS Club Challenge 2017 Mt Cotton https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2017/4/cams-club-challenge-2017-mt-cotton The CAMS Club Challenge at Mt Cotton was held last weekend in surprisingly good weather and track conditions. Cyclone Debbie had dumped record levels of rain and some decent winds over S.E Qld on the Wednesday and Thursday before, after smacking the entire Qld coast pretty much from south of Townsville, so it was a nice surprise to see the track in such great shape. Thanks to all the MG Car Club and Mt Cotton hillclimb volunteers.

The event saw 13 teams entered in the hillclimb and it was great to see so many different cars compete. 

The photos from the event are up on my web site at this link

I also did video of one run for all competitors (hopefully I didn't miss anyone). It was Run 3 for most and Run 4 for a couple of the 1st competitors. The video can be found at my Youtube Channel here. I still have to name a couple of the videos but I will get that finished soon hopefully.

I will be offering my usual deal, $50 for all your photos (2400 x 1800 pixels) from the event for download and will include the video of your car with the photos. Offer valid until the end of April. Contact me if you wish to take me up on the offer.

I was playing with slow shutter speeds again and have attached a few photos from the day.

Mt Cotton Hillclimb Series 2017 Round 2 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2017/3/mt-cotton-hillclimb-series-2017-round-2 I was able to get to both days of competition for this event but the weather gods played a part in reducing the time spent at the track. Both days were supposed to be wet but Saturday held off all day luckily. It poured all night Saturday night and was a bit wet and drizzly on Sunday morning early. At 8:30 am when racing started we had the sun poking it’s head through the clouds and we were good to go. Unfortunately our luck didn’t last and about half an hour into the first run the drizzle came back, just as we were getting a dry line too, and the drizzle quickly became rain, then heavy rain and then torrential rain. There were a couple of attempts to get cars running again only to be met with more rain so at about 11 am I called it quits and came home to process photos from Saturday and half a run on Sunday. Me and my gear soaked through, good fun shooting in the rain though !

I have finished sorting the photos and have uploaded them to my web site at this link

There is also some video of most of the entrants from the 2nd run on Saturday at my Youtube channel here

I have attached a couple of photos from the weekend with last two showing how wet it was.

Mt Cotton Hillclimb Series 2017 Round 1 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2017/3/mt-cotton-hillclimb-series-2017-round-1 Round 1 of the Mt Cotton Hillclimb series was held on the last weekend of February on another perfect Qld day. Summer's over, thank you !

It was an interesting meeting, a few quick regulars missing but a couple of new ones to replace them made up a good sized field. I managed to attend Sunday only for what was great day of competition with no major delays. One open wheeler into the nuts and that was about it.

I spent most of the day doing something a little different, I like to shoot tight-ish normally but I thought I'd shoot real tight instead. Hopefully I had a successful day. I have attached half a dozen from the day.

The rest of the photos from the Round can be found at this link

Come and Try/Test and Tune Jan 2017 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2017/1/come-and-try/test-and-tune-jan-2017 Last Sunday saw the first event for the year at Mt Cotton Hillclimb. A Come and Try morning for newcomers to the sport and then a Test and Tune afternoon for the regulars.

I didn't arrive until after 10:30am so missed most of the Come and Try starters and it was a practise day for me too. I was trying out a new camera body, comparing it with the two bodies I usually take with me on these days. So it was a day playing with different settings on different camera bodies and lenses, meaning a few missed opportunities and not as many photos as usual. Didn't make a decision about the new body yet, I need to get one to the Jet Boat racing to see how it performs there.

Still plenty of photos though for everyone to go through. The link to the photos is here http://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/f477058731

Here's a couple from the day.

Last Mt Cotton round for the year https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2016/12/last-mt-cotton-round-for-the-year Round 6 of the Carric Accounting and Tighe Cams Mt Cotton Hillclimb series was run in typical summer conditions here in sunny qld - hot, extremely hot !

A huge field competed in the last round for 2016 and because there were no major delays during the day, other than a couple of stoppages to remove a goanna from the track,  the drivers got more runs than I think they expected considering the 100 odd entrants. The open wheeler boys put on a great display breaking into the 37's.

 

Photos from the event are here 

The usual offer of all the 2400 x 1800 photos of your car for $50 is available until the end of January 2017.

Couple of photos from the event I like. The first one Bradley Smith getting some air at the hairpin and the second is some more air from John Gibson in the PRC Rally Mitsubishi Lancer.

Mt Cotton Round 6 2016 https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2016/11/mt-cotton-round-6-2016 The last round of the Mt Cotton Hillclimb series for 2016 is upon us this weekend and I believe the entry list is huge, great to see.

I am only going to be able to get to Sunday's competition and plan on doing some video as well as the usual photos. Hoping for fine weather all day and no afternoon thunderstorms.

I have prepared a framed gallery print for the MG Car Club of Brisbane to raffle, here's the finished product. A 16" x 20" frame with one 8" x 10" and three 5" x 7" photos.

Temora photos done https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2016/11/tmora-photos-done I managed to get the last of the photos uploaded to my Temora galleries last Sunday night. I keep saying this but I have to be more economical when shooting so I can turn the photos around faster. Anyway here's the link to the photos

The night racing at Temora wasn't as well lit as I had hoped and there were big differences in the light at various parts of the track, particularly through the centre. Not as well lit as Baypark in NZ. I had to use the EM1 with the 35 - 100 f2 instead of the E5 and 50 - 200 SWD because of the better high ISO performance which left me shooting a bit wide but you get that. Here are a couple of shots with reflections from the night racing I liked. Bring on next season.

V8 Superb https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2016/11/v8-superb It has been just over 2 weeks since Rounds 6 and 7 of the AFJSA V8 Superboats were held in Temora NSW and I am still a fair way away from getting all video and photos done but I am ploughing through it.

Both rounds were held in glorious weather and competition was fierce all weekend. I have to wait till next year now for anymore of this racing.

Here is a photo (from Round 7 on Saturday) of Troublemaker getting a bit of air on a right-hander at the far end of the track. Brooke Lucas and Navi went hard from Heat 1 on both days, it was great to watch.

Jetsprint Photo and Frame Offer https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2016/8/jetsprint-photo-and-frame-offer Hi Jetboat Teams,

After Round 5 of the AFJSA Jetsprint Series to be held at Cabarita on the 3rd and 4th of September I am offering a photo and frame special for the race teams.

Receive all the photos taken of your boat for personal use (download fullsize un-edited Jpegs, normally $15 each) from both Cabarita rounds and a four photo Gallery Print (photos of your choice) in a double matted, modern, black 16" x 20" timber frame. I would normally end up with between 50 to 150 photos of each boat from each round. The frame is similar to the 9 photo frame most of you have already seen, just a little smaller. It will include three 5" x 7" and one 8" x 10" prints and a silver plaque with your choice of wording on three lines. This framed print is normally $165 excluding freight. The special price for this package is $350, which represents a huge saving over normal prices and includes delivery of the frame anywhere in Australia. 

These frames would make great gifts for your sponsors and crew and if extra framed prints are required I will prepare them for $150 per additional frame and $10 extra freight per frame.

See a sample of the frame below. Please let me know if you are interested in this offer by Friday the 2nd Sept (before the races) to ensure I take plenty of photos of your boat. Full payment is required by Monday 12th Sept by direct deposit or (cash at the weekend) before I make the frames as they are all special ordered and individually made.

See you at Round 5.

Round 4 AFJSA Jetsprints https://www.iancolleyphotography.com.au/blog/2016/8/round-4-afjsa-jetsprints Round 4 of the AFJSA Jetsprint series held at Cabarita was run and won on the 6th and 7th of August. I managed to get to both days of racing. Unfortunately Saturday was interrupted by occasional showers of rain slowing the days proceedings. Sunday was a completely different day, fine and sunny, a perfect day for racing and the decent sized crowd got to witness some great competition. 

Ramjet and Natwell Racing had both succumbed to engine failures but the rest of the teams went hard all day, with Darryl Hutton taking the top prize for the day in a borrowed boat. Competition in the 400's was intense with Brett and Lin Thornton in 2 Obsessed taking a hard earned win.

All the photos from the weekend have been uploaded to my web site and can be purchased from the galleries linked here.

Can't wait for Round 5 coming up the 1st weekend in September. I will have a new gallery print ready to go for the Tweed Coast Jetsprint Club, containing photos from the Meremere round of the UIM World Series held in New Zealand in January 2016.
