Default Not quite, Tour De France

More like Tour De Half Moon Bay, Beach Road, Black Rock, not far from my daughters place.

They have some serious looks on their faces. Wouldn't want to be in front of them!

Nicely framed and exposed. You did a good job of getting them both in focus while they were coming at you.

Cool shot! Talk about effort, concentration and grit - they might not be doing the tour de France, but they are working every bit as hard. Your photo really brings that out.

Indeed a fine capture despite the speed, the crowd, and the difficult lighting. Just curious, which lens did you use, and how far were you from them?

I can't remember exactly how far away, maybe 8-10 mts, the image has been cropped a bit.
