I finally got round to processing my photos from the UCI 2023 Glasgow Men's Road Race.
Too many to post so here's a link and a few samples.

    Fantastic shots! Love the motion blur in the pic with the riders from Mexico, Ireland, Cyprus and Equador.

    Oh, didn't even notice that's the first one here. 😂

    I like to think that there is something in there for every aspect. Cheers!

    Good MvdP hero shot

    Should have choppped the hand off the person holding the phone though (and I'm not talking about doing it in editing software!)

    If you have the time to look at the link then I did just that in others.
    (The software method I hasten to add! 🤣)

    Cheers! You are welcome.
    Not that I go to many races so don't get your hopes up.

    Was worried it was my hand you were amputating, but it’s not my phone. I think you were almost next to me.

    Not up to your quality, but a cracking day out.

    The hand in my pic is Mrs MM, so no surgery allowed.

    Looking again, i think it is my hand, holding an iphone. Think I was wearing a bright blue dhb hooded jacket.
    he’s just a little bit nearer the white line on yours

    Yup! we must have been pretty much side by side.
    Here's my shot that includes the most of the crowd before I straightened and cropped.
    See if you can spot yourself, or where you were. I was only there for 10 minutes before popping into the Pot Still to watch the finish.

    That means it is her phone in the photo up top. 🤣

    Does mean that Pross wants Malx's wife's hand cut off. 🤣

    Actually Malx's hand that he wants cut off I think!

    They’re different hands.
    In my pic of vdp my missus with ring is applauding. In pb’s pic it’s me holding my phone, less than a second later.
    Pog in green was a minute or more later, missus was taking a pic and I’ve moved.

    Regardless, it was a really good spot to stand - had a drink in the Pot watching the final split and crash, then popped outside to see them come past on the last lap. Was the best place I went for getting to the barrier and riders slowed enough to get round the corner.
    It was difficult to get a decent view on Montrose st (especially for mrs) and they climbed faster than i can sprint on the flat.

    Ah, it's your hand that is to be chopped! 🤣
    Must admit that I was surprised at how quiet it was outside the Pot.
    Seemed a logical place to pop in and out of, and the atmosphere inside was good with the Dutch and Belgians watching it on TV.
    That said, I spent the majority of my time between George St. and St. Vincent St.

    Amputation is a small penalty for spoiling someone’s photo to be fair.

    So a lot of you lads were nipping in and out of the Pot Still all afternoon then?

    Love to see it.

    White t-shirt guy on the left and all his friends were Dutch. 😉
    The section closer to the door were Belgians. I believe there may have been some Scots. 🤣
