Thunderstorms rolled in bringing Reagan National departures to a stand still for nearly two hours last week. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many departure planes parked so close together and not at a gate before. I could hear Fred Thompson say “stack ’em, pack ’em and rack ’em”! – from Die Hard II.

This is the second year I had the opportunity to photograph La Vuelta cycling peloton in Puerto Rico. Probably one of the most physical shoots I’ve ever experienced. I’m riding on the back of a motorcycle for 3 days covering 375 miles while photographing cyclists just a few feet away that can exceed 35 miles per hour.

The event tests your photography skills for sure, knowing your craft is a must. The day starts in darkness and will turn into extreme bright sun within just a couple hours. Each day consists of : Get on the bike, photograph the cyclists as your motorcycle whizzes by, get ahead of the riders and scout a location to shoot, get off the bike quickly, get in position, check your gear, check the light, shoot the cyclists, run back to bike, get back on bike, adjust gear, go go go! Great team we had again this year Chris Pike, Kip Pierson and myself. Thanks to Kip and the La Vuelta team for bringing me back.

Enjoy. – Chris
