On 26th February 2019 my local camera club held a "Show and Tell" evening for members to show and talk about photographs on a visit or trip.
I choose the 150th running of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at the Curragh race course 20 miles or so west of Dublin in Ireland on the 27th June 2015.
The first Irish Derby was held in 1866 with a first prize of £421. The prize for the winner in 2015 was 725,000 Euros with a total prize fund of 1,25 Million Euros.
The race was run over a distance of 1.5 miles.
The round trip for me was approximately 300 miles - I left home at !0:30 in the morning, arriving at the Curragh at 13:00 for the first race at 15:00. I arrived back home at 23:30.
I had 5 photographs published in the Belfast News Letter.
I took 1,261 photographs over the day and published 608 on my web site:
