Lance is Podcasting on the Tour

I love that Lance is Podcasting from the road daily during the Tour. As a long time fan I was hard pressed to get any information on the Tour in the States.

I purchased the D100 when they first came out and you were lucky to find one in stock. I rounded one up and had it shipped the next day (Cord Camera in Columbus, Ohio-Great Folks). Roll the clock ahead almost two years…

Blue Heron

Blue Heron

I live in Colorado and Blue Heron’s are not an everyday experience. Imagine my surprise when this BIG ASS BIRD lands on my fence. I think he was shopping for lunch in my neighbor’s Koi pond. I had just enough time to grab this shot and then he was off for his snack.
