Shooting sporting events is never easy, but they are always fun and rewarding.  A 7:30am race start time meant my job started at 5am, but it was an amazing day of trying to capture the determination of the racers and the spirit of the event.  Overcast skies created great lighting for us and we had just a few sprinkles to deal with towards the end, which wasn’t a problem.  I was able to shoot from one of the rescue boats for a while, which gave me a point of view few others could get.  Beyond that, I was able to run into a few friends and witness the aftermath of a marriage proposal – to which the answer was “yes.”  Each finisher received a medal which could be engraved on-site with their time – great idea.  Top three winners in each age group received custom pottery awards and the top overall Olympic-course male and female finishers walked away (rode away?) with new bikes – and, of course, well-deserved bragging rights.  It was a great, well-managed triathlon . . . enjoy the photos.
