Borneo Safari 2010 - Special Stages 1 & 2

Although I missed the opportunity to go full BS2010 expedition, it is good that the first two Special Stages (SS) were started near Kota Kinabalu. So, many of the enthusiast photographers got the opportunity to shoot some of the extreme off road challenge in Borneo Safari. The venue for the SS1 and SS2 is Bukit Vor in Putatan. It is actually big stone quarry. Taking photos of the action  under the hot sun is not easy, but nothing can stop the temptation to get the shoot. I had already prepared since some previous 4x4 challenges to wear a good shoes, hand protector and large hat. I also have an umbrella and small folding chair.

Camera in use: Olympus E-1 + 12-60mm
