We're also running a Photo Contest for the best 3 photos of this year's Lamma 500. Win a mixed case of ThirstyHorse wines, an all-free website, a photo shoot or a free home page ad. Check out the Lamma-zine for details, May 13.

Lamma.com.hk is an official Media Partner of this event and I'll be one of the Photo Contest judges, together with Brad Tarr and Gina Miller.
You're most welcome to catch up with me anytime on the beach or on the water for most of Sunday.

Another very successful Lamma 500 has been completed on a fantastic day on Power Station Beach yesterday and lots of photographers were capturing the races.

With only an 18-200mm lens myself I couldn't keep up with the pros on the beach with their extra-long 500 mm lenses on tripods capturing the finishing line of the dragonboats' 500 metre and 1 km races all day long. So I focused more on the sidelines, people having great fun in all kinds of ways...

Email me your the files or website/blog/photo gallery/Facebook links to your best photos of the day till next Sunday, May 23 and win a full or half case of mixed fine wines, plus choose one of my prizes I've put up for this Lamma 500 Photo Contest, see Lamma-zine, May 14.

As expected, the first photographer to submit photos for our contest is Grahame Collins. He seems to be really eager for some of those bottles of wine!

See his all-day photo shoot below:

My photo gallery, click below.

As I'm one of the Photo Contest judges I'm not eligible for the prizes, of course.
I might not stand a chance anyway to win against all these great photographers who have already or will soon submit their photos this week!

Clock the sound of snoring as we view another round of gym bunnies wearing Lycra and plastic wigs.

The carbon fiber paddles had me in fits of laughter - such a high tech sport

Well, those gym bunnies wearing tight Lycra and colourful wigs on the beach are definitely a lot easier on the eye than some aging, balding expats in ancient, stained T-shirts hanging out in bars, myself included occasionally.

Becoming a wannabe "gym bunny" myself, I have (so far) refrained from wearing Lycra and a wig, much to the relief of my friends.

But the "Boracay Bumshells" dragon boat team from The Philippines definitely attracted the photographers (and local dragon boaters eager to pose with them) like a honeypot attracting flies.

I disagree - this lot are almost blinding, whats with the fluorescent rain cycling cape. They're not exactly spring chickens either.

I'd much prefer a picture of Lamma Gung stained tee-shirt and all

Deadline of the Lamma 500 Photo Contest is today. Please send me your photos if you haven't done so.

As there are just a handful of photographers so far your chance of winning one of the 3 prizes would be really good!
