3-Sports Chimborazo Cross pictures here llll

Caught the very tail end of the Mens C race, then got a bunch of shots of the Mens AB.

More harsh early afternoon light. The shots down in the single track section will be a bit grainy. I had to step on 'em a bunch to tame the nasty shadows.

19th Annual Tidewater Mountain Bike Challenge Photos here

To flash or not to flash?

Always a dilema when I'm in the woods with my camera. OK, get your mind out of the gutter. Lots of harsh lite and shadows at the Tidewater Mountain Bike Challenge. A flash is nice to be SURE you get the subject lit, but the result is more natural if you are lucky enough to hit it without one.

R.Suydam railing a turn in an attempt to repeat as the Virginia State Single Speed Champion.

More pictures will be up by 9PM tonight. I'll post a link. All shots were taken between 10:30 and 11:15AM, before I left for the Chimborazo Cross Race.

Nice to catch Wes on the OTHER side of the lens. Diffuse flash here to fight the backlight.
