Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This is the second of my cyclist photographs; the first was taken on a beautiful, bright day, this, by comparison was taken on a day that became very grey and wet.

It was taken at Salford Quays, one of my favourite locations for photography, on a day when a few TE members decided to get together for a day's social and to take some photographs.

This was in the afternoon, when the threatening clouds began to cast their rain. We were rushing back to our cars after a hasty farewell and there, next to one of the iconic bridge supports, was a lone cyclist furiously pedalling to shorten his journey time.
It was just what I had wanted, to capture a cyclist !
I waited until he reached a point where the steps and the bridge supports could be included in the frame and ...CLICK! It was worth getting soaked!

I'm sure Marius won't object to us sharing a little story! He was so wet when he got to his car that he reported he had removed his pants for the long drive home. Thank goodness he hadn't needed to get petrol!

Have a lovely Sunday, Bev :-)
