This morning’s Olympic Road Race
Jul 28, 2012

Here are three shots of the men’s Olympic Road Race taken this morning. Unexpected footpath closures made getting to this spot more difficult than I expected from my reconnoitre. The riders have passed Pyrford Church, Surrey, ridden down a short but steep and wiggly hill and have just descended onto the floodplain of the River Wey near the ruins of Newark Priory. I chose the spot because they have been slowed by a sharp bend.

Not ideal pictures. Riders go past in a flash and all one can do is press the release and hope one’s chosen settings are not too far out. On reflection it might have been better to have selected manual focus and pre-focused fairly close to get the nearest riders more in focus.
