I only managed to get out to the senior mens/u23 race today but it was worth it. Temps were in the mid 50’s with overcast skies. The snow had mostly melted. The course was a black, muddy track. It was like a giant shadowbox everywhere! I could not have asked for better cross weather.
I also took a chance and shot most of the series with a 50mm fixed lens. I will likely add onto this post with a few more pics taken with a loaned DSLR later tonight or tomorrow, but all of these are taken with my Leica camera with a fixed 50mm. Let me know what you think?!
There are a lot of pics. This time I did not edit them down. I just quickly went through them, edited one and then copied my settings to the images I liked and thought represented the day. Hope you enjoy them.

OK….I did actually get a few pics from a different camera. I had a loaned DSLR with a 70-200 2.8. I only shot a handful of shots with it as I don’t really know how to handle these cameras anymore and find more joy in my little camera with a fixed lens, but…I think I got some keepers!
I processed these in color as they have a different texture and feel due to the different sensor and glass. I liked how they complimented my black and whites shared above.
