Flickr blog features Tour of California

Flickr shows you where you can find many Amgen Tour of California photos.

My photography for this year’s Tour is over, but you can find plenty of good photos at Ken Conley’s website.

Steve Hill also has photographer Mike Norris covering the tour this year over at Steephill.TV. Mike’s a really nice guy. I first met Mike when he passed by me in Menlo Park last year. You can find Mike’s photos on Flickr here.

If you’re looking for updates on the MASH SF fixed gear team, they’re still riding the course. Josh Kadis is following them and posting updates on their progress on his Twitter feed. The Clif Bar blog is also supposed to be posting updates, though it looks like they’re too busy to post for now.

Finally, I need to give a shout out to Kristian Hansen of Trackstand.com, who’s graciously shooting some photos I requested. You can find his photos at Flickr.com/Trackstand.

    Very cool photo. I wonder if Ken has a trick to get the rain to show up so distinctly…

    Warren, shallow depth of field from a wide open lens is the trick. This ensures only a short 'plane' of raindrops is in focus, instead of geting a smear of rain through the whole photo. In this photo you might be able to see it a little better — the water splash from the rear tire is in sharp focus, while the rain falling down is a little bit blurry.
