I took a brief trip to the circuit of Ingleborough cycle time trial today and had a play with off-camera flash to see what I could come up with. Where I was stood the riders were approaching pretty fast so my results were a bit hit and miss as a few of them had got past my flash by the time I hit the shutter release. In my defense I made things tricky for myself though as I was down the hill shooting at 200mm as I wanted to capture them on the brow (which was a little hill on a fast downhill section).

An enjoyable hour and one or two decent images. Hope your weekend is going well and thanks for taking a look at this.

Like this one, it's got bags of atmosphere. Very hairy legs for a time trialler though Smile

Cracking shot with lots of atmosphere Darren. Was this taken with the quadra's? Agree with Sarah about the legs though!

Fantastic image & well captured. Those hairs probably cost him a second or so....!

Works for me! Superb sense of isolation that really gives you a "feel" of the work and effort the rider is having to put in. Tremendous work!
