Steeplechase

Steeplechase June 5th, 1976 — A Nikon F with motordrive and a long extension cord allowed me to get this water jump picture during the men’s steeplechase at the high school track and field provincial championships at Swangard Stadium. It’s a shot I wouldn’t think of doing today with a digital camera; they don’t like wet. The mechanical Nikon F, however, was almost indestructible and never had to be babied.
