Today the #TourOfBritain came through our village so we thought it was only polite to take some time out this afternoon to take a stroll past the cricket ground and watch the racers as they sped past. With primary school children lining the way and quite a crowd of locals out to cheer the riders on it was a lovely atmosphere. I decided to head away from the crowd to get a few shots against a less cluttered background with some nice autumn colour behind the riders. I positioned myself with a few other people at the bottom off Kingston Hill in Kingston Blount, Canon camera in hand I was poised and ready! After lots of police and organiser motorbikes came flying though the cyclists suddenly appeared. I had to be quick as they had just travelled down the hill and still had plenty of pace. Here are a few of my favourite shots from the race, it all happened in such a blur and was all over in 30 seconds once the pack appeared. See if there are any cyclists you can recognise?
