This was the image of the weekend for me. Midnight, sitting awake, waiting for someone to get back to the tent and tell us what the conditions were like. Surrounded by boxes of gear, sitting with a brew, trying just to survive the night.
Playing around with rear-curtain flash, I shot this 'ghost rider' as he came through towards the last little 'out-and-back' by the campsite. A friend asked what I'd done in Photoshop to get this effect, and the answer is 'nothing'.
Just after 4am. I'd got in from a somewhat disasterous night lap, having broken my rear mech and run the second half of the course, and decided I needed to chill out by taking some nice long-exposure shots of other racers. I'm glad I did.
"I'll always be your lighthouse in these trying times" - The Bushburys This is the Butt of Lewis lighthouse when a bank of sea fret rolled in. The light shining through the glass is the sun. Kind of spooky, but also quite cool, I thought.
