Light was overcast, some drizzle in morning, then sunny in afternoon. Another pretty mellow day -- after normal churn helping NCVC U19 squad launch. Juniors picked-up three podiums in their age groups, and my sons ran well in 1/2/3 race (until stiff pothole cracked stem and carbon wheels) and Cat 4 race (Avery's first).
Ran 711 images. Working with a little more critical eye, will post about 200. Canon 300 mm proved out about as expected, though image quality/focus hunting was not as good as prior effort at Trade Zone ... maybe user defect (not enough coffee) or weaker light. 300 mm depth of field is a little shallow for bike race, so I'm tending to move back to the 70-200 F4L as lens-of-choice for bike races (Carolyn cheers ... no new 'investment'). Also, I miss the zoom for doing walkabout candid shots and broader landscapes.
May take 1.4X teleconverter to Ephrata or Bike Jam to see how that works ... more reach, easier framing (and cheaper).
