Youth Moto X.

Not far from where I live there is a Moto X track, today the Temple Motorcycle Club where running a youth meeting. It’s the first time I have been to a off road race in twenty years. I use to race in my teens but I think a couple of sun’s have burnt themselves out since then. We have had great weather this week and today it continued, so with the camera gear packed I walked over to the meeting. I can’t tell you who are in the photos has I did not have an event program. So here’s a few photos from today.

Love the expression on the young racers face standing beside the flag marshal.

Plenty of big air time off the jumps and in case you don’t notice I’ll point out the dust.

Getting artistic here, I focus on the post and then turn off the auto-focus on the lens.

You get a nice out of focus action shot.MX-3979.jpgMX-3991.jpg

Number 56 provided some great action.

Did I tell you about the dust. The racing was called off with 5 or 6 races still to be run due to the dust and wind. Visibility around the track got so bad it became unsafe for the riders to continue. So I’ll leave you with my final shots.

1st Presbyterian Church

Here is a night shot of 1st Presbyterian Church in the town of Saintfield, County Down, Ireland. It was built in 1777 on the old site of the original church which lost it’s roof during a severe wind storm on Christmas Eve 1775.  The minister, Rev. Thomas Leslie Birch formed the County Down Society of the United Irish Men and  he also took part in the 1798 Rebellion.
