Xilinx Cyclocross, Longmont, CO 8.21.12

Some photos from cyclocross racing on Sunday 8.21.12 at the Xilinx campus in Longmont, CO. It's pretty up there in farm country. Nice course,  a little flat, but wow, what a gorgeous day. A bit warm even. 

Enjoy the photos. I'm really having a good time with the slow shutter speed/panning shot. Trying to really blur and drag out the background, while keeping the subject in focus. I'd say it works out about 5-10% of the shots, maybe not even that much. But it's fun. Try it. Let me know if you like that kind of thing. It illustrates, or gives the impression of, movement. These guys and gals are fast.
