The Maillot Jaune

Tour de France - Maillot-JauneIt was a pleasure to be back in The People’s Republic of South Yorkshire today for Stage 2 of the Tour de France. We intended to walk to the last climb of the day at Jenkin Road, but when we arrived decided instead to park ourselves on a very tight bend at the 3 km to go mark.
Burst mode on the camera worked well, giving me all the desired shots, such as the stage leaders, but for me, the money shot today was this one of the Maillot Jaune, even if he did trail in 20 minutes after the stage winner.


RaindropsMany shots of raindrops to choose from today but I eventually settled on this one. I woke up this morning and found the rain overnight had caused all these tiny upside down houses to sprout outside my window.
