There’s not much you don’t see at Summernats ‘Australia’s Biggest Horsepower Party’ that’s held every January in Canberra, ACT.

Loads of cars, beers and burnouts and of course lots of girls. Sure you can get shots of the ladies parading around, and most blokes do, but I happened to stumble on this as I was making my around the venue on the Saturday.

I was intrigued by a large group of males forming over by a yellow Ford. On closer inspection I found that it wasn’t the car they were that interested in, rather a model by the name of Amaril Inez had caught their attention. You’d almost think that I’d asked her to pose for the shot but I just managed to snap this as I passed between two cars. Sometimes you get lucky and at that split second she looked straight into my lens and I made this image.

Note entirely sports photography, although some may see it that way!
