Rata (Champs) photos uploading

Finally caught up, and the Rata photos can be found on the club photos page ) as they upload. You'll know the set is complete when I update the cover photo.

The heavy overcast on the day forced me to increase the ISO setting. The photos are consequently a little grainier than I prefer, and the stunning landscapes are a bit fuzzy and soft edged.

Also my later start meant I missed the first few riders out and didn't see much of them on the course - sorry guys - if we use that course in future I now have the shortcuts sussed and there will be no escape ;-)

The final batch of photos from Bulls (Marton School Fundraiser) taken by Andrea should go up next week. I'm just waiting on them to turn up in the post.

Partial set of Bright's Farm photos uploading

With the third event in 3 consecutive weekends coming up tomorrow, it's been a busy old time, and still more to come.

Over Easter I was photographing the Fiber Fresh Endurance Nationals at Taupo, and with various magazine publishing deadlines to consider, I've had to concentrate on that event to the exclusion of all else. Consequently, the Bright's Farm set is still a work in progress.

Having completed the Endurance sets, I've got Bright's to the stage where I think I've seen and photographed everyone at least once, and a partial set is now uploading. The rest will come over the next week, and then I'll start the Club Champs Rata set and hopefully wrap the season before winter.

Photos as they load can be accessed from the photos page ( as usual.

If you missed them, the results can be found on the Results page (

Fingers crossed for a fine day at Rata, and I hope to see you on the trail. Because of the travel it may be a later start for us than usual, but Leslie and I do intend to get there.
