Clocktower Aquathlon

We were invited to shoot the brand new Clocktower Aquathlon event hosted by Tri Energy this morning over at Abberley Hall School in Worcestershire. The forecast was heavy rain and thunder but I think all the competitors managed to get through the whole event without getting wet (apart from the initial swim 🙂 )

With 80 competiters and almost 1,800 shots we managed to get them all bib-tagged and uploaded within 4 hours of returning which I think is a new record! Definitely a fun event on beautiful grounds, hope to return next year!

Arrow Valley parkrun 258 – Kingfisher Harriers takeover!

We had another great morning at Arrow Valley parkrun today, with our running club (Kingfisher harriers) doing a “takeover” this week filling all available volunteer slots. I was Run Director for the day so couldn’t get distracted by any photography with Deb covering the offical photographer slot.

Deb took some great snaps, keeping close to the start/finish to try and get everybody in but also capture the general friendly family atmosphere we are lucky to have with all the running clubs when we converge at our weekly parkrun.

Technical notes on the shots, Deb opted for the 760d (which is more familiar to her than the 80d) with a fast shutter due some intense direct sunlight and a nice long f/4-5.6 55-250mm zoom to get some nice natural candid shots.
