Just like LL said...

"Don't call it a comeback...I've been here for years..."*


...I just haven't had much to say lately.

I finally got out to shoot something interesting (relatively, I guess). The 2010 edition of the Greenbrier Challenge mountain bike race was held this past Sunday in Boonsboro MD. I made the drive north and clicked off a couple of thousand images on my new(ish) Canon 7D camera. The day was overcast and threatened rain, but produced none (thankfully). The course was damp/wet and I settled in at a sloppy log crossing complete with a landing zone of roots and ruts about a mile from the start/finish line. Hilarity ensued. (Not really. There were a few crashes but thankfully none very bad. Everybody re-mounted their steeds and rode off.)

The overcast lighting and high ISO abilities of the new camera produced some great images. And the new AF system on the camera allowed me to come home with far fewer throw-away shots than my old 30D ever did. pass the word to others who may be interested in seeing themselves in all their muddy glory.

Uh, edit to add, I guess a link would be helpful, eh? Sorry, I'm a bit rusty at this.
