The 2018 Tour de France

Some 7 years on and Le Tour returns to the Vendee with the Grand Depart from Noirmoutier so we were waiting at Sainte Radegonde des Noyers some 47.5 Kms from the finish armed with the D750 & the excellent Tamron 70-200 f2.8 lens along with D7100 with 70-300 to avoid lens swapping.

  1. I really like the Tour de France picture with the blurry riders in the foreground. You can almost smell the action.
