Picture Perfect : Austrian Grand Prix

The Red Bull Ring in the stunning Styrian Alps of Austria must be the most scenic circuit that we visit all year. This shot makes use of the alpine flowers growing on the trackside banks all around this beautiful circuit. By getting down low and laying amongst the flowers you get a vivid foreground, whilst the yellow of Daniel’s R.S.19 matches this burst of colour on the track. The only difficulty is fighting with the insects that are crawling all over you!
