Lady with Blue Parasol

For some reason, this image seems to have caught the imagination of a few people who have seen it. Maybe its the suggested loneliness of the woman; or the contrast with the parasol and the natural environment. I like its simplicity and the suggestion of daintiness in a jungle-like setting.

2012 Olympics - Women's Road Race

We joined the crowds at LEatherhead for some close up action in the Women's Road Race (where Lizzie Armistead secured a very well-deserved silver medal). The photos relied a little on getting the settings right before the riders arrived, as all of the action happened so quickly. The results are very tight crops of the main photos, but hopefully captured the mood of the day.
