Tour de France 2011


posted on 5th of july, 2011


It's not very often that a major sporting event happens around this rural area of France but this year the first three days of the famous Tour de France race were very close to where I live. I was really lucky that I was able to go to the first 2 days (only 1 hour drive from home) and got some great photos.

The first day was at Mont des Alouettes, where they come up the hill to the finish line with the windmill. I stood at around 500m from the finish. There had been some accidents so they were spaced out enough to get at least a few photos.



The second day I went to Les Essarts where they were doing team trials. It was brilliant because I got to see the start and the finish.







Not only did I have 2 great days taking photos all the ones I uploaded got accepted and it really boosted my portfolio.

Very lucky for you to have the event pass so close - I will only be able to see it on TV but I am sure it is a lot different to actually be there. Hope you get some good sales from your photos.
