One of the things I like doing when working at a race circuit is to go out for a walk in the evening to check out where the best spots are to shoot from and also confirm that the red zones (no go areas) are all marked for when the track goes live.

It is also an opportunity to get some shots of the circuit from the drivers point of view, something you can't do when the cars are actually on track.  

At the last event for the European Le Mans Series at the Circuit Paul Ricard I took part in the evening track walk and with the setting sun I was able to capture some interesting shots of the kerbs and the run off areas around the circuit.  Paul Ricard is famous for its red, white and blue stripes in the run off areas which have replaced gravel traps for slowing cars that have spun off the circuit.

I suppose it is my fine art or landscape photographers eye that draws me to take these type of images but I always do this whenever I visit a circuit, however the Circuit Paul Ricard has to be one of the most photogenic tracks in the world.

The images were taken with a Fujifilm X-T4 and either a XF10-24mm f4 fitted with a Haida M10 filter holder with a circular polariser and a Red Diamond 0.9 ND grad filter or the XF200mm f2.
