I Was Invited to Photograph, Climb To The Clouds Mt. Washington, NH

Base of the road early morning. 

One the nicest racers I met was Mike Ryan.  He is driving his truck in the race.

David Higgins broke the Hill's record, his time 6 minutes, 11 sec.
My photo of the start of his record run.

A few months ago I was approached to see if I might be interested in helping photograph  Climb to the Clouds | The 2011 Climb To the Clouds Hillclimb.  I had never photographed car races before but thought it would be a wonderful and learning experience.

My job was to photograph the base activities, crowd and start of the races.

1893 Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, Lupine Festival 2011

1893 St. Matthew's Episcopal Summer Chapel

I was not sure I could make the festival this year. The only day I was able to go, it was raining and overcast.  I managed to take shots in between the rain allowing more dramatic photos in my opinion.

Motorcycle and Flags

Today is the last day of Laconia's Bike Week. Our residents welcome the bikers, their arrivals are great for our tourist industry plus the event is fun to attend and watch. You will see people lined up on the streets watching the bikers and I have to admit I was one of those people taking photos.

Bob and I went south, taking a road trip vacation a few weeks ago, visiting our family and friends in Asheville, North Carolina.
