Twilight Criterium

This is one of the rare situations where I actually enjoy the "out of focus - blurriness" of the image. Somehow to me it enhances the intensity of the moment.

San Rafael Twilight Criterium.

The mens race starts at Twilight and ends in the dark.

I over heard one of the bicyclists say it is challenging to tell what is a pot hole, bump or shadow.

They have huge spot lights set up but still it must be difficult. It is a short course 1 k loop in the city.

I would say they reach speeds of 40-60 km/hr. So if they do see a pot hole it's to late to do anything about it.

I love the blur... it gives the shot that "action" feel.

I like good blurs. This is such a case as it definitely enhances the action part of the picture.
