    Very wet mountain bike race

    I took a few photos at the Cool, California mountain bike race last week and I hung around a water crossing. I was fascinated by some of the patterns from the spray. Below are a few, more on my photo site.

    Fun, fun, fun! Good shots of the action.

    Too bad they were racing so they were probably not enjoying getting wet and dirty.
    Reminds me of my dirt bike days...long ago. We'd wait for someone to go slowly through a mud hole and then rip by them from behind. We all got zapped more than once.
    Keep Shooting!

    And fun was had by all!! Fast shutter created some very interesting effects with the water.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Outstanding images, really enjoyed seen the water and mud flying!

    very good job keeping the focus on the rider instead of the drops in the foreground
