Cyprus Rally 2016 – Background Story
Cyprus Rally is one of the biggest sport event that happens in Cyprus in my opinion. It always provides us with excitement, adrenaline and a lot of show. Fans of sports cars and cars in general, speed and risk are gathering to watch the 3 days event every year. A lot of fans from abroad also come in Cyprus to watch the event. Cyprus Rally 2016 was held on 7-9 October 2016.
I know that I am late for posting photos related to Cyprus Rally 2016, but I would like to share them with you. Some of you may not be interested at all or not any more after almost 2 months from the event. For those who are still interested to see some more photos you may find them below.
Cyprus Rally 2016 is part of European Rally Championship (ERC) and FIA Middle-East Rally Championship.
I was not able to follow them and get photos during the real action, but I had a few minutes to capture some of the cars right after the official start ceremony. Cars/crews were passing in front of me, heading for the first stage of the competition.
It was difficult for me to capture the cars as I wanted to, due to the light conditions. I managed to get some decent results on my photos. At that time, there was a lot of traffic and night was coming, so lighting was changing all the time. Physical light was getting less and less and another thing was the headlights of the cars. The sport was hit by the Headlights of the cars were hitting the spot from 3 different directions and even towards my camera. As the cars were passing by, direction of light was changing continuously, along with the shadows that were created.
Below you will find some of the photos that I was able to capture with my lens.
