I spent a nice relaxing weekend in the NC mountains (Boone area) with a couple other photographer friends. It was pretty much foggy and raining off and on all weekend, so not too many opportunities for large landscape photos… I really hoped to come home with a few images of the nice scenic views from the western part of the state. Oh well.
I did enjoy my time spent at Sugar Mountain in Banner Elk, NC. They held a NORBA NSMB event, which a few other BF members have posted about. The DS racing was pretty awesome. I chased photos of the Semi-Pro/Pro DS on Saturday afternoon. Definitely some exiting racing on a pretty cool course. Sunday I checked out the Pro DH and a little short track racing. A fellow photo-dork acted as a lighting assistant throughout most of my time on the mountain, which worked out pretty well. Here a couple of photos I snagged plus a gallery to check out some of the others---> sugar gallery

Semi Pro DS – unknown rider, but I really like the image

(My wife actually wants to hang this one in the house )
I'll prolly add a few more photos to the gallery this weekend.
