    Post your SeaOtter race photos!

    I look the same every year. I need to mix up the jersies so I can tell the year's apart. I can tell you what was crossing my mind at this time: "Damn, I should have trained. This hurts!"

    SS Sport. 46/85. Time of 1:46. Riding a rigid 29er SS.

    Clearly about to cough up a lung...this year's effort was good enough for 44th place in SS Sport.

    I was out on the fire road at the starting climbs of the Beginners Class race and got these photos that I posted on my flickr account. I was with Jeffh ringing the cow bell!

    Something like (quoting DAS): "I assume you're on a PC, so look at your browser then Ctl+PrtScrn, then open Paint and paste. Then crop, then save as. This should give you a .jpg that you can post. From a Mac, Shift+Applekey+4 then mouse and click to snapshot. It saves a .png to your desktop."

    That's what I'm talkin' about!

    Best XC pic yet by far. I'll say it again: Put a big sign next to the photographers, and you'll see a lot more exciting race pics. Maybe more carnage too

    C.K., was that shot during the race, or are you a cheeky monkey? I think I smell some fun photoshop projects coming down the pipeline...

    It was actually on my pre-run of the course. (in which I learned is not a great idea to do during another race at 5 P.M. the day before your race.) Needless to say keeping it easy when you run into several other friends in the same class/race as well as being unfamiliar w/ a one lap race format will leave ya a bit tired at 8 A.M. the next morning.

    C.K.

    P.S. The photog's always shoot bad XC photo's. There are a million places to shoot killer image on course however, they spread out over 20 miles and it's easy to shoot someone climbing a hill.

    Lots of faaces with goofy grins, poses, and flipping birds and devil signs too.

    Heck, I would totally make devil horns for the camera if I knew it were coming.

    Oi! Man.... I didn't know he was there, ya give me some down hill speed and a decent hit and it's on. Hell it wouldn't take much more than someone that gave a *(^% to take cool XC photo's.....)

    If you can't see a Feller sitting on the top of a top of a hill w/ a lens the size of a baseball bat there might not be much help for ya.

    Cheers,

    If I may ask, what setup are you running when you take these pics? Currently using film, trying to break into the world of digital, or at least in SLR. I've had a point and shoot digi for a while.
    Thanks,
    Jason

    Nikon D200...love the camera. Get digital SLR as soon as you can. The D200 and D300 will use almost all the legacy Nikon lenses with full functionality. A huge point to consider if you currently have and SLR is if you can use any of your current equipment or if you want to start from scratch. For most stuff I use a collection of prime lenses: 10.5 fish eye, 20mm, 85mm, and 180 mm. good luck!

    Thanks for the info...currently I use a Pentax ZX-L and with a 28-210mm lens that I think I can use with digital cams. My other two lenses are manual focus and cannot be used with the digital cam.
