Picture Notes

When you click the thumbnail images on this page, a larger image will open.  You may need to click on that larger image again in order to see the photo at its full resolution.  This is because many web browsers are set to automatically make large images smaller.  This is done so that the entire image will be visible on the screen. The problem is that this process can make the images look fuzzier than they actual are and it can also hide some of the fine detail.  This issue will be more of a problem for people with low resolution monitors, that is, a resolution below 1920 x 1200, but it can apply to anyone.

Drivers without helmets are not racing.  In most cases these photos were taken when they were returning to the pit area after a run down the track.

Some of the photos at this Meet were taken with a very long focal length.  In 'plain talk' that means they were taken from a great distance away from the subject.  In some cases, the camera was a kilometer or more away from what was being photographed.  Because the weather was so hot, these long focal length images show lots of distortion due to heat waves in the atmosphere.  This distortion is easily seen in the panorama at the top of this page.  This type of weather can also produce the same effect that causes people in the desert to see a mirage that they think is water when no water exists.  What appears to be water on the track in photo ME1D024813.jpg is merely a reflection caused by the hot air off the track meeting the cooler air above it.
