Les 24 Heures de Rouen

Posted by Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 9 May 2018 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Sur la Seine, en centre-ville de Rouen, la plus grande course d'endurance motonautique .
Cette année les conditions atmosphériques en Normandie en vigilance orange pluie , vents violents et flocons ont retardé le départ de plus de 7h et les bateaux tapaient sur les vagues ... et mouillée et gelée mes doigts n'arrivaient plus à tourner les molettes de l'appareil photo mais c'était passionnant ...!

Motorboat racing
On the river Seine, in city center of Rouen, the 24 hours motorboat racing .
This year the weather situation in Normandy in orange vigilance level rain, violent winds and flakes delayed the departure of more than 7 hours and boats banged... and me... wet and ice-cold my fingers did not any more manage to shoot right with the camera but it was fascinating...!

The racing boat is a great subject for a fine action shot. The bad weather must have caused a sad delay.
