Those of you who attended this year's event know that it occurred on one of the hottest days on record--reaching above 100 degrees. The spot I choose was down near the river (cooler and much more shady) where the Dust Dodgers Bridge is located. As riders came across the bridge, they passed through the filtered sunlight that made it through the trees. This in and out of the shadows and sunlight makes for challenging action photography. Instead of me trying to guess which picture you might like, I've posted your entire sequence.

As you search for your photo I encourage you to zoom in to find the one picture that shows you looking the best as you came through the various light patterns.

Just a reminder--if you decide to order a print (IMO lustre or metallic paper is a great choice for these types of shots) be sure to crop to the best part of your photo. If you do a digital download, and after the download is complete, and if needed, crop it for a more dramatic or aesthetic effect. As always, if you need help with that let me know. I've included some before and after cropped photos for examples.
