Wairarapa's Rewanui CTR photos uploading

As I write, a set of photos from the Wairarapa Endurance and CTR Club ride held at Rewanui on 30 April (originally billed as Tinui on the Wairarapa ride calendar) is uploading to Flickr. This was the last ride of the Wairarapa club's season.

As I understand, this was the first time the Rewanui Forest Park has been used as a CTR venue, and competitors are grateful to the Trimble Foundation, the farm leasee, and the farm manager, Paul, and his family. And of course, to the stalwarts of the Wairarapa club who organised the day.

As noted previously, we found a window of opportunity in the weather, and most of the day was fine, if a little overcast. Because of the lower than usual light levels, the photos have been shot at 1600 ASA, with the result that they are a lot "noisier" than usual. This manifests in a somewhat "grainy" appearance and the colours are a little "flat" and the focus a little "soft". At screen resolution, it probably won't show too badly, but if you want to blow up an image to a larger size, for printing, then you should check before you spend.

Our personal thanks to Paul and Noelle who kindly allowed us to camp overnight at the venue - we would otherwise have had a prohibitively early start to our day ;-)
