April Squares: On Top of the Hill

This is my day eight contribution to Becky’s April Squares: Top photo challenge and probably the oldest photo I will post for April Squares.

Two competitors crest the top of a hill in a race. Photographed at the moto cross track in Hatherton, Cheshire in the late 1970s. Except in those days it was known as scrambling.

Not the shot I wanted to use but if I had cropped my first choice square I would have lost the bottom half of the wheels as it’s portrait format and filling so much of the frame.

Yes, I didn’t realise how tight the bike was in the frame until I looked at it on the screen and realised there was no point trying to crop it square.

Great action shot. I like the front wheel being up in the air a little and the concentration on the rider’s face. And of course, the contrast with the spectators lounging on the hill in the background.

Thanks Graham. It’s not the photo I wanted to use but the one I had in mind was a vertical and it wouldn’t have cropped square without losing the bottom half of the wheels.
