    those are pretty awesome. i love the photo of the photographers in the field, as well as the lady on the horse and the joy she seems to bring to the riders in an otherwise grueling race.

    and you gotta love the devil, and that's probably the best photo i've ever seen of him.

    Yes, the devil jumping and the horse riding in parallel (where you can see the looks of amusement or bewilderment on some of the riders' faces) are terrific. Thanks for sharing.

    The site those pics are from, <a href="http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/">The Big Picture</a>, is a recently launched photo blog from The Boston Globe that's been consistently awesome since it launched a month or so ago.

    Worth a bookmark.

    Nice pics but enough with the field of sunflowers with riders passing shot. It may be the single most cliche shot in sports.
    i may have overreacted

    It's easy to imagine those cameras are bazookas.
