It was a stellar day for the Tour de White Rock Criterion on July 13, 2013. Not a cloud in the sky, a balmy 26 degrees with a refreshing breeze off the ocean.
The Crit started at Roper and Johnston, circled down around 5 corners, up Fir Street, and back to Johnston. A one-kilometre course, set to 60 laps for the men and 30 for the women.
It was full of high speeds, elite athletes and unbelievable scenery.
After shooting the Giro di Burnaby with my iPhone, I amped up my coverage a bit, snapping over 600 pics in a 2 hour period; this time on my Nikon D7000 (18mm to 105 mm).
The D7000 is a mid-range consumer camera that has proved to be the RIGHT choice for me. It is light. It is responsive. It fits in my hand beautifully, and the dials are all easy to adjust with the camera body against my cheek. It took me over 2 years to decide on which camera I was going to buy and I think that I made the right choice for my ever wandering creative eye.
