Here is a sampling of images.

Thanks CW100. I thought they turned out okay considering I hadn't shot XC in about 3 years.

Nice work, Caleb. Great light in #2. I think #3 is my favorite. I really like the group shot also.

Thanks Russ. I had a great shot of the runner in #3 in the same light with even better exposure, but it was just OoF enough to not include it. The photo immediatly proceeding the photo to which I am referring is the fourth one in the blog post.

As for the group shot, I was using flash and I wasn't entirely happy with the mixed color temperatures (as close they may be), but I thought it did a good job of knocking down the shadows.

You know, it's hard to make X-Country shots cool, but I think you did a pretty good job... I have a go at this in the next couple weeks myself, so thanks for sharing!

Thanks! The client liked them, so while that's always good, it's good to hear encouraging words from one's pears.

Good luck with your shoot coming up.
