At the Jalapeno del Sol 10k trail run, I gave you the zombie look, the crazy chicken, the blue steel. Oh wait, not that last one. And now, I give you downright ugly! In photography class, I learned if you shoot up at a subject, it makes the subject appear larger. This is a good technique for shooting buildings, but is just scary for a certain ugly-race-pic-taking sometimes trail runner:
Love those action shots. And didn't I tell you that this was not such an easy trail to run?
How do I run that in the dark? That's right - I fall.
And, of course, you have to have the final parting upward shots - including a close up. UGLY. Love it.
Thanks to Hill Country Rambling for making me look even larger!
