I don't think I've ever shot a race in so much rain. This was the British Time Trials Championships, held on 4th September 2011 and this was the weather. I spent the whole afternoon in the boot of the car.
He does not look happy ! excellent shot.
Thanks Patrick, don't think any of us looked very happy in that rain. At least I was partly covered in the boot of the car.
Excellent shot and focusing, i even like the valve positioning. Looks like he didn't want to smile for the camera
Not many were smiling Stuart Some of them were looking at the camera with desperation in their eyes.
Thanks for the comment.
Thanks for the HC Pete, that's nearly made it worthwhile spending all that time getting soaked
A worthy award Sarah, looks like a pretty miserable day though.
The morning was ok for the Masters event, but the poor Juniors, Espoirs & Ladies had it the worst, as did the first of the Senior Men. I do like the shots though as they are a bit different to my normal.
Love it. Well worth braving the elements for.
Cracking shot not easy to get nice a sharp... love it
I was out shooting a spaniels working test in that lovely weather!
Thanks Jon, at least now I know I wasn't the only daft beggar out with a camera on Sunday
Really good shot. Superbly sharp anf full of atmosphere...
Brings back many memories intially of racing but later on photographing in similar condtions
those deserve medals as do you for suffering that weather
brilliant, and my word i would hate to be in that, i cycle myself doing 25-30 mile every 2 nights and i have been caught in showers and got drenched so the face of this guy says it all.
Thanks Stevie & thanks Ian. Poor lad, his face was a picture. I might post some up from the rest of the day as there were some good riders out.
Perfect timing there Susan, with his position on the bike and the valve placement and spot on shutter speed.
Congratulations on the H(ot)C(offee)
Thanks Goggz, I'd not even noticed the valve position until it was commented on I was too busy trying to get sharp shots through the rain.
