It was a very busy weekend as I had a wedding and a few other things going on but as soon as I drove by the CLE grounds on the Sunday I knew I had to go there at some point to check out what was going on. I had heard random advertisements about Thunder at the Bay on the radio but never really got the details. So, when I had a couple hours to spare I parked my car at the grounds and made my way through the gate. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in to see a whole lot of vintage cars parked in the lot. With my camera in tow, I weaved in and out of the rows of cars and got in close to take some photos of the cars.
Since I have been to quite a few car shows in Thunder Bay in the past, I have seen my fare share of vehicles but this was by far the largest gathering I can remember seeing. It was such a great turnout! With my trusty Nikon D750 and 35mm lens, I got in nice and close to almost every car and came away with some great shots. Obviously it's nice to walk around and take in the car as whole, but for me, the attention is in the details. So many of the cars have such unique parts and modifications that it's hard to miss them sometimes if you don't get in close.
When I arrived there was also a fashion show going on as well as some RC Car races. For me though, I focuses mainly on the cars. In the end I think I walked around for close to 2 hours making sure to try and see every single car. As far as I know this was the first year for the event, but I could be wrong. Either way, I really hope it happens again next year because it was a lot of fun to see all the cars.
