OX CART RACING

OX CART RACING

Kon Tum, Vietnam

THE STORY

Ox cart racing is a popular sport in many Southeast asian countries, whether done on major yearly festivals or just for fun, like here in Kon Tum, central Vietnam. It just happened when I was searching for a nice sunset spot near the river.

THE TECHNIQUE

Though being well equipped, action on low-light (it was close to sunset) is always a compromise. Had it been earlier, I’d set a slightly higher speed. As dust is not water, ox carts are nof F1, and their movement was not parallel to the sensor, 1/500 was fast enough.
