Dunedin's Jaffa Race
This year the morning was grey and drizzly and I was wondering if the race was going to be held at all but luckily it cleared before hand. The race is over in seconds and watching the jaffa's coming down the hill is amazing, it's like a fast moving sheet of orange. At the end of the race kids race to pick up the battered jaffas, (many come armed with bags for the purpose) and I watched as the trickle of water coming down the gutters turned to red.
This photo is from a couple of years ago as my shots this year didn't turn out as well as I had hoped.
