Pikes Peak Hill Climb photos, Practice Day 1

Posted by on Jun 22, 2011 in Published Work


Last year I missed out on the first practice session at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, and after seeing fellow photographer Linhberg Nguyen’s photos on SpeedHunters.com, I made sure to be up on the mountain bright and early for the opening day.

If you stand in the right spot as the sun comes up, the sky and surrounding area turn all sorts of amazing colors, and there’s a 2-3 minute window where everything looks simply epic. There’s nothing else like it in motorsports. My favorite photo of the day was Monster Tajima tearing up the mountain with a beautiful Colorado sunrise in the background.
