Race day is when you find out if all the training will pay off.
On this day, for this NightOwl, it did.
I just came across this image I captured years ago. It lived on an old hard drive and wasn’t given a second thought. This shot is pretty different from how I shoot now but I wanted to share it here because like all photographs we make, it’s part of the process. I feel like I am a better photographer because of images like this one. Being able to self critique and see what did and didn’t work here. It’s a constant learning game and I’m sure I’ll share something another 5 years from now that I’m capturing in this present time and be able to express the same sentiment.
I feel like that’s part of the beauty of art; it keeps growing and if we put enough work in, so long as we’re doing it right, we do too.

Sometimes you just get lucky and you get a downpour on your hike through the massive hemlocks which then reveal the beauty of the Pacific only when the rains finally stop and the fog begins to lift.
The bike scene in Austin Texas is on fire and not just due to the high temperatures. Texas is consistently getting on the podium across the nation and I don’t think that will be changing anytime soon.
There’s not much more exhilarating than a high-speed chase to the finish line when you’re often inches from the wheel in front of you.

Ellen Nobel leads the U23 field off the line during the Cyclocross National Championships in Asheville.
It’s always an interesting moment seeing this force of power come at you when seconds before there was mostly silence and nerves on the other side of that white line.
Nobel went on to take another National title about an hour after this photo was taken. Want to see her victoriously crossing that finish line? Give us a follow on our Instagram for more things cross and I’m sure you’ll come across some of her finish line photos over the years. I don’t suspect those images will be stopping anytime soon.
Of course if you need a photographer please don’t hesitate to reach out!
