Running Pronghorn

Pronghorn are said to be the second fastest animal on land.  We were lucky enough to find a small herd of them during our visit to Yellowstone National Park and this one was practically showing off for us.


Cycling Along the River

photograph of cyclists riding near the James RiverRiverside Drive, in Richmond, Virginia, is one of the most scenic spots I know of for cycling.  On any given Saturday or Sunday in the summer there are far more cyclists and runners on this road than cars.  Although this stretch is flat and runs right along the James River, the road also offers several steep climbs and descents.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

Photograph of a smiling woman cyclingCycling and photography are two of my favorite activities.  Both activities make me feel happy and alive.

On October 6 I visited one of the more scenic spots along the Tour de Richmond cycling route to try my hand at photographing cyclists in motion.  This photo really captures the speed and motion of cycling as I wanted to portray it.  I thought it fit in well with this week’s photo challenge because the cyclist looks really happy too!  Click on the photo to see a larger image.
