Here is a pack of a different sort. Taken near Durand, WI this past weekend. I haven't posted too much lately but here are a few. As always any C&C is welcome.

A little uphill battle

The Charge the the Line

And the winner is...

All three are real strong images Yak! My only C&C on 1 and 3 would be to use a bit slower shutter speed to blur the spokes.

Thanks for the tip on shutter speeds, I did some slow shutter speed work. I just wasn't confident that I would get the finish line shot so I bumped the speed back up. And I almost missed it anyway. That finish speed was over 35mph. I didn't even know that I had gotten the shot till I started chimping after the riders had passed.

So what shot did you miss while chimping? gringringrin Not to worry, I am a habitual chimper! I am thinking I should sign up for a 5 step program for chimpers, CA (Chimpers Anonymous) And you thought in the photo world that stood for "chromatic aberration" grin

I like that last one with the trio. The way the pavement and spokes are blurred indicates movement, but yet the guys are sharp.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
