Ride 9 of 2014, White Peaks photo shoot, Cotic Solaris

About 15 miles ridden, about 6 hours out in the hills, about 250 photographs taken, of these 250 there are about 45 different actual location shots.

Classic route guide for STW magazine, just the three of us, me, Jenn and Barney, wet, windy, muddy, snowy, cold but mostly good light.

Trails were extra claggy, mud tyres would have been a good idea !

Stopped at Eyam for lunch, struggled to leave the warmth of the cafe, made the most of the dying light, job done.

Bonus was calling in to see Cy and Paul at Cotic HQ.

The shot above was taken whilst driving home, the actual riding shots will be in the April edition of the magazine, its fair to say that I'm quite pleased with some of them.

And for the two of you who are interested, Nikon D7000, Nikon 16-85mm f3.5-5.6, Sigma 50-150mm f2.8, 35mm f1.8, stashed inside a lowepro photosport 200 AW bag, with a Sony RX100 as back up.
