Week 03 – Styria to Tyrol

June 16, 2010

From the mountains in Styria to the mountains in Tyrol ! Packed alil lighter for this shoot (although i could prob still cut down the load) Hiked for an hour up the mountain to get to my first checkpoint ! Holyyy sheeeeet !

Characteristic of most Red Bull events, you gotta be pretty BAD ASS to take part..

Only the strong survive. Professional mountain runner. All round BAD ASS.

First part of the race is an endurance bike orienteering race through town and up the mountain

Then a running and navigation race over the rocky terrain to find your checkpoints. Chasing the action with 2 cameras and a backpack was pretty sick too.

* Slips on muddy slope*
“F@#k ! My lens ! F#@K !

*Falls into melting snow*
“F$%K ! My Cameras ! F&%K !

This is when I got distracted. If only i had some atap chee, rose syrup, condensed milk and some green jelly with me…hmm..

Thats 2 weekends in the mountains and 1 more to go!

Note to self: DO NOT jump bare foot into snow.

    Some breathtaking shots you’ve got there of some gorgeous scenery. Very colorful, very vivid. Great portrait shot of the mountain runner, too. It’s a photo with personality.
