It was another weekend of racing, this time a “Roubaix” style race along the roads and dykes in Pitt Meadows. It rained for most of the day which helped to mimic some of the conditions often found in the Belgian spring classics.
Concentration, determination or despair…not sure which one of these he was feeling.

The weather and physical surroundings created a very Flandrian feel to the race.

More long exposure experimentation at Vancouver City Hall. It was very windy and I wasn’t sure if my tripod would remain steady with a 406 second exposure. I used 19 stops of neutral density and some post in Lightroom to achieve this result.

It was another weekend of bicycle racing, this time in Aldergrove, BC. The day was a mixed bag of brilliant sunshine and threatening clouds. The winds were strong along 0 Avenue, next to the US border and even forced riders into echelons.

I’m getting a little behind in posting my weekly photos, but rest assured, I’m still creating one each week. This past week was my first chance to test my new Formatt-Hitec 100mm filters (an attempt to standardize my filters across different lenses). I shot this one at one of my favourite spots to capture the late afternoon light and the city skyline.
Technical notes: 10 stop ND + 3 stop soft edge grad ND, 30 second exposure, processed entirely in On1 2018 software. Anamorphic crop (2.39:1)

Another day photographing the Escape Velocity Spring Series, this time in Ft. Langley. The infamous Snake climb was on tap today and was the focal point of my coverage. This rider is looking at the climb just ahead as he rounds the switchback.

Escape Velocity Spring Series began on Saturday, typically the start of the road racing season in the Lower Mainland. A three-person breakaway for a large portion of the Elite Men’s race highlighted the action.
