Return To Watkins Glen

In a few days I will be back at my home track, Watkins Glen, NY.   It is a return I am excited about as the last race I attended at the Glen was a NASCAR  Winston Cup race in the early nineties.  I am coming back equipped with a new Canon T3i and assorted lenses to capture some good pictures to bring to you.  Here's a picture of me in the center and my best friend, Steve Taylor, date unknown, that gives you a sense of the landscape of this track. Plenty of elevation change and some tricky corners make this a great track for the drivers. I enjoyed watching F1 legends Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, James Hunt, Graham Hill, Ronnie Peterson and many more over the years. This is the track that is the subject of the photo book I am writing ' Echoes From The Glen' that I hope to have ready for publishing later this year.

And in a few days-  The Watkins Glen of Today!   Watch for future posts of the race.

The cars have come a long way from those days.
