Birmingham Half Marathon 2010 – Part 2

ND – Dark, Cold, Blue

Following on from…
…my earlier post covering Birmingham’s EDF Energy Half Marathon on Sunday 24th October 2010, here are some further shots from this great and growing annual event.

EDF Energy Birmingham Half Marathon

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 70mm, Exposure 1/1600 @ F11, ISO 1000, Despite the wind blowing the flag about, I admit that the shutter speed here was a bit unnecessarily quick. However, in this light ISO 1000 is perfectly usable on a Nikon D700, and the reason I was in this situation was because this was a grabbed shot in between others that necessitated the higher ISO.

One Blue Shoe

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 300mm, Exposure 1/800 @ F5.6, ISO 640, Looking down from the Five Ways roundabout, at the underpass heading up along the Hagley Road, the runners have turned their last corner and are on the final straight. Though a bright sunny day, the underpass was almost completely in shadow, except for a narrow stream of light that cut across the central reservation (the wall on the right of this image) and I liked this light breaking across the runners as they briefly crossed it.

Two Red Shoes

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 300mm, Exposure 1/1600 @ F5.6, ISO 800, Crossing that sliver of light again. I'm using a fast shutter to prevent issues with the runners moving and my cold hands shaking the camera. The resultant necessary ISO's were shrugged off by the excellent D700.

Glasses

Reservoir Zombies

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 300mm, Exposure 1/2500 @ F6.3, ISO 1000.

577

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 300mm, Exposure 1/2500 @ F5.6, ISO 1000.

1462

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 300mm, Exposure 1/2500 @ F8, ISO 1000, I deliberately dropped out the strong green colours of the balloons and clothing in the background as it was too distracting. You see the runner, then the Union Jack flag behind him.

Legs

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 300mm, Exposure 1/1600 @ F5.6, ISO 500, They're tired, but some of them are airborne.

Crucified Centurion

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 195mm, Exposure 1/1600 @ F5.6, ISO 400, I bet this centurion wishes that they still built roads straight to keep the distance down.

Spiderman & Bicycle

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 125mm, Exposure 1/800 @ F5, ISO 1000, You're only seeing Spiderman aren't you?

Shared Passion

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 90mm, Exposure 1/800 @ F11, ISO 1000, Marathon's bring people together.

Blankets and Water

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 85mm, Exposure 1/500 @ F18, ISO 500.

Plastic Everywhere

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 185mm, Exposure 1/500 @ F14, ISO 500, Part of the mess to be cleaned up.

Reflection

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 155mm, Exposure 1/500 @ F8, ISO 500.

Have further fitness fun,

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010
