Hitting The Wall!

For some, "hitting the wall" is a metaphor. In the case of this Porsche driver, it was a bit more literal. Captured by being lazy, because after 4 days of running on foot to chase the light, I planted myself in one spot to shoot cars coming over a crest. With my eye in the viewfinder, I heard tires screeching, but couldn't find the car while panning a 600 mm lens. So I took my eye away from the camera, spotted the car in the dusk light of Le Mans racing and started shooting. The problem: I was still in manual focus for the crest...so I flipped the switch, hoping to lock on and fired three single frames, as motor-drive was disengaged...and prayed. The driver was unharmed, but the car was wrecked.
