Follow the Leader

By saltireblue    
Back to the Tour of Norway from a couple of weeks ago.
Grit, determination and winner instinct triumphs in the end.

I was very pleased with the way my previous upload, "Who is She" was received. It is good to try something different.

Many thanks for the support and comments.

Many thanks for bothering.

Malc

Timing, plus focus, creating images that tell the story eloquently. All these are good, V3 deserves its own upload. We get another chance to photograph this in September, I'm looking forward to it.

Three classic images, Malc. Every bit as good as we see on the telly over here, and whetting my appetite for the Tour of Britain in September (we're decamping to Dumfries for the nearest stage to home) with of course Le Tour in the middle.
And you've capyured some nice blur in the b/g (esp. V1) which is more than the telly ever manages. Smashing stuff.

Like them all, but V1 amazed me because the cyclists are all coming towards me (and you) with such great determination.

I like the complete congestion in V 1 as a result of the 200mm. telephoto setting but with just the leader in sharp detail.......V 1 def. my favourite.

I really like v1 with the leader in focus and the rest of the field fading behind - an excellent set all round Malc.

True grit indeed Malc.
I am gritting my teeth with rage.
Lets have less of the blokes and lets see a nice female wearing these tight cycle shorts for a change !!
Good set.
Mick.
The race is on and as ever the intensity of cycle racing shows here well.

Blustery, and miserably cold here Sad I'm actually looking forward to 96F............
