You are 'right in their faces' with this perceptive set, Brian.

Re: Tour of Britain

Nice shots Brian - the kids look delighted to meet Lord Bradley of All The Universe!

How did you get so close?

Ciao ... John

Re: Tour of Britain

Brilliant shots, that really capture the atmosphere.

Shame it didn't go so well for Cav today. He seems to have suffered a bit of late and the Olympics road race must have been a real blow to him.

Thanks for sharing these.

Amanda

Re: Tour of Britain

I was using the 40-150mm with EM-5. Maybe Cav was saving himself for the World Road Race Championships - as suggested in the TV coverage. The ToB is not that well ranked on the pro cycling calendar yet . I don't think this takes anything away from him he has achieved so much in the last few seasons.

They're at my end tomorrow, trouble is I am booked MoT 30 miles away so I will be racing to get to the route. Obviously if I get anything I will post, hope I can come close to these ones.
