Anyway, early Saturday morning, I found out the the cyclists would be passing the Setiawangsa Station. This is an opportunity that should not be missed. So off I went . I was there at about 10.00 am and was opposite the station. But I was not happy with the position of too much shadow and high contrast for any decent photography.
So I took a walk further down where there was an open space. This was in front of the Sri Maya Condo entrance, with a nice curve of the road and a slope. So took my position but kept having tochange them as the crowd started to gather.
I met a fellow photographer and we started talking photography. he told me that he travels a lot, but with a point and shoot camera, he felt something missing. Yet with a DSLR, he would be carrying around an expensive item. Guess we all have that problem. That is why you always see me with my back pack !
Anyway, we waited for more than one hour before the leading cyclist came into view. Was I sweating ! Even with my cap, I could still feel the heat. However I missed my portable chair and my sun-glasses !
Antway here are the photos. Its my first in taking sporting event so it might be to expectation and I would need more practice. hmmmm..... the F1 is just round the corner !
Air-coverage. This was taken at 1/600 - thus freezing the props.
all quiet while waiting for the first sign !!

Thus....thats my saturday morning !
