There’s something aesthetically magnetic about polished chrome under a bright blue sky!
I shot this hood ornament of a vintage Jaguar on Sunday (3 October) at an open-air exhibition of vintage wedding cars – which explains the white ribbon draped around the hind legs of the leaping animal.
The headlamp in the background does not belong to a nearby vehicle – it is the right-hand headlight of the Jaguar itself!
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/350 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.
