Beers, Bikes, Burritos!

October 11, 2012

Since the BC Bike Race in July (photos here) it has been one of the busiest summers for me. Between various local photo work and taking important time to be with my wife and daughter I had the opportunity to spend the month of August on the road shooting three consecutive mountain biking trips.  The images and stories from these trips will be trickling out in the near future (one of them is here ). September saw more local work and catching up.  Last week I hit the road to Utah for the second year in a row with a few friends to view and demo some of the 2013 mountain bikes at Outerbike and most importantly ride some great desert singletrack.  While the priority was on riding (all I packed was my D700 body with 50mm 1.4 lens) I did manage to capture a few images:Mountain biking  the Slickrock trail in MoabDS_121003_0045 Mountain biking  the Slickrock trail in MoabDS_121003_0047
