Photos from Waitarere CTR available soon

In fact, as I write, photos are up-loading to the Flickr website. Because the upload will take some time, I'll create the set and put a link on the WATRC site now, but be aware that the set may not be fully populated until Monday evening.

So far I've only had time to edit the CTR photos, but I'll start editing the Endurance day shortly.

Waitarere having longer rides and attracting more entrants, always means more photos to edit. The trail layouts also allow multiple opportunities to photograph competitors in the longer events. In the 4 hours available to me between strapping duties, I managed to get around the 13 km inner trail and caught many riders several times, and took an embarassingly large number of pics.

The one set of people I missed was the Open riders. With their early start and faster pace I simply never caught up with them, despite my shortcuts - sorry guys - that's how it goes some days.

It was great to see a lot of new faces on the ride, as well as many familiar one. Also the new combinations of horse and rider. Most of all it was great to see everyone having fun.

The Endurance photos will come, but it may be another week, sorry.
