Watching a night harness race in Inverses, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada
The Harness races in Cape Breton runs from May to late October, in the daytime or evenings.
It was the month of September when we visited the community of Inverness, in Cape Breton, and didn’t know anything about this event… My husband just saw an ad in the local newspaper, and we thought it was something we should attempt – he was right. I’m glad he was, because there was a time when I liked to do panning photography, so I thought it was a good opportunity to try my hand 🙂
Because of the darkness of the night, the photos didn’t have too much color, so I decided to covert them into digital paintings.
It was not easy to photograph them because their motion was quite erratic, as they were changing lanes, trying to get in front of each-other… At one moment I decided to just take some close-ups 🙂
The tripod didn’t help, but I was able to get to the surrounding fence, brace my elbows and shoot the rapid motion… I also made this picture as a painting using the digital media.
The last two pictures of the Harness race are available as prints in my Fine Art America Gallery. Click on them for a larger view:
