I thought I would share a couple of photos from the 24 Hours of Moab Mountain Bike Race.  I’m here to photograph Pua Sawicki, who we met in our campground – we have camped near them the last two years here in Moab.  Her husband and crew have been running me around on all terrain vehicles so that I can photograph her on the course – I’ll post photos of her tomorrow.  Right now, she is over a half hour ahead of the nearest women, and looking strong.  She is hoping to set the world record for distance traveled on a mountain bike trail in 24 hours.

  1. That top photo is fantastic! The oranges and yellows blend beautifully. What settings did you use for this?

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    Scott – this was with a 100-400 at 400 shooting right into the setting sun. Nothing fancy on the settings. ISO 800 320 of a second and f/18. Actually, I hate to share those – I should have opened up to f/8 and used a faster speed, but I was playing around with some flash shots when I saw this scene develop, and did correct my settings for this image – I did on some of the subsequent ones, they didn’t have as strong of a composition.

  6. “I put them in a numbered list, went to random.org and generated number 36, and that number belong to Dena – congratulations Dena, watch for an email from me, for once an email that says you won really isn’t a scam.”
    Where I have been able to read about this?
