Cycling - 4

... a few photos from the Tour de Grandview (a criterium) road race in Grandview Heights. Talk about amazing weather, partially sunny 78 degrees, wonderful day for a race.

 

I don't really do sports photography so this was a bit of a new thing for me, interesting learning experience. I decided to put things on manual focus, set things up at the right distance from me and when the racers came down out of the hill I just fired away...

 

NOTE: This photo made it into Flickr's 'Explore" as one of the top five hundred most interesting photos on a particular day. You can see all of my photo's that have made it into the Flickr Explore pages here.
