Triathlon 2.0

I poster a similar picture last winter. Last night I updated it, this time I used my bike. I think this print will go in my cube.

Sprint to the finish, the only decent shot I got, seems the guy next to me thought clapping in front of my lens was a good idea...

The stage 7 winners. 1st Martin Gilbert, 2nd Andrew Pinfold, 3rd Thor Hushovd. The Average speed was 27.96mph. Thor Hushovd also won the green sprinters jersey.

Kansas City Skyline

After sorting through 1500 Patagonia photos and preparing a large print, mat and frame order I didn't have much motivation to go out and shoot any photos. That changed this week after selling 4 prints at a work art fair. Here are a few classic KC skyline pictures, these vantage points have been used by hundreds of photographers and it's because they work.

Patagonia Trail Pics

Here's a couple interesting pics from the trail. The first picture shows the steep decline after going over the pass, the trail continued down like this for about a mile. Where there wasn't a railing there was rope to hang on to. At two spots along the trail there was a ladder you had to use, it was actually pretty dangerous when you consider the hikers that have to use these are usually hauling heavy packs, they also have to contend with the Patagonia winds and the frequent rain makes them slick. On the plus side these ladders are fairly new, just a few years back the ladders were made of wood and rope.

Driving in Argentina and Chile

Here's a few pictures taken while driving in Argentina and Chile. Our rental car looked decent and it only had 32,000km on it but it turned out to be a big pos. Once you got above 100km/hr (~62mph) it started to shake and the wind noise was incredible. The running joke before our trip even started came from my e-mails with the rental company. They said, "you flip it over 9,000 pesos". We thought that was pretty funny, I mean really how often do cars flip over?? Well on our way back from the Torres del Paine area we stopped to get gas, at the station we saw a rental pick up that had been flipped over. I said to Nick, hey look he flipped it over, 9,000!

Are you sure this is made for cars?

One of our bald tires that somehow took us over 1,200km and over some nasty gravel/dirt roads without a flat!

Patagonia was incredibly windy, 20-60mph winds were the norm.

Patagonia, (Torres del Paine and Fitz Roy)

A couple pictures from Patagonia, I'm just starting to work my way through all the pics but here's a couple I like. It's hard to capture the amazing Patagonia mountains with a camera but I thought these two did a pretty good job.
