Standing by the roadside one fine July Day just north of Chablis, drinking wine, eating cheese and chocolates. Picking up souvenirs tossed by the passing Tour caravan. Waiting for hours to see my heroes………. and it’s all over in a flash. This is about what you see for all your time invested.
Was it worth it. HELL YES!!!
This is the “Tour De France”

(just north of Chablis, Fr. 2008)

    WOW Rick this is spectacular…must have taken you quite a while to get this look but definitely worth the work. A big fave for sure!!

  • Thanks Jim, looking for a way to express the blur that is the Peloton. It took some time but with some neat photoshop tricks it really was easier than it looks
