Title: Dani & … flowers
Location: Circuit of Jerez
Date: May 4th, 2013
Photographer’s insight: Mild temperature, sun and warm breeze meant that the weather conditions were very good in Jerez 2013. This has insured that even the flowers could take advantage of the situation to bloom and to color with a beautiful yellow the grass of Jerez. It was a special occasion and in my opinion, it must be exploited to give a different touch to the pictures. This track has already been photogenic, but at that moment it made an appearance in floral.
Camera: Nikon D4
