Something a little different this month. At the end of last week I hooked up with a bunch of guys who were heading over to the Isle of Man for the start of the TT races in their rather tidy supercars. I shot a bunch of tracking shots (in the gallery just below) as they headed up the motorway, and then co-ordinated the above shot with them where they took up the whole motorway - it was a real fun morning! If you follow me over on my Facebook page then you'll have had a sneak preview of these last week.
I've had such great feedback on the image above that I felt it would make a great desktop wallpaper for June. See here for download instructions.
Once again, I'm running a little competition running revolving around this photograph, but to be eligible and party to the competition details you need to be in my "Image of the Month" club. Sign up here - you've got to be in it to win it!
If it's more than a desktop wallpaper that you're looking for, then you can purchase prints or a commercial license for this image here.
Before I sign off for another week, I thought I'd include a few of the better links that I've found worth sharing on Twitter over the last few weeks. If you're on Twitter then feel free to follow me - I'm @NeilAlexanderD
