After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own. I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week. No recycling. I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots. Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.
I don’t often use photos of other people for my Friday Foto post, but this one was too good to pass up. This couple was making the delicate shuffle down the hill to an aid station to pick up their drop bags after racing for 31 miles at the Lake Perry Rocks! 50K north of Topeka, KS. No mylar wrap and shuttle buses here! I couldn’t resist taking this shot as I stood waiting for my son to finish the race.
From a technical standpoint, what stood out to me were the colors and the lighting. You can see how the trees cast many shadows on the road behind and in front of the couple. I waited for them to hit a patch of light between the shadows before clicking the shutter. I like the result!
