I’ve been back home from traveling with Alta Quota Adventures for about a week now and I’m reliving the memories of the trip by sorting through my photos. I’d like to share a few portraits I took of our illustrious crew.
First, we have Ajax, our fearless leader, looking like Robert Redford relaxing on the set between takes.
And here is Ernesto relaxing in the garden before dinner. Yes, that’s a garden in the background. Can’t you tell? (He is under the gazebo.)
Here is a rare sighting of Craig off the bike, enjoying the view of the mountains from Bagni Vecchi.
This is barefoot Rudy, enjoying Bormio’s old town.
And here is Jessica, relaxing in a doorway.
Here is Carla (a.k.a. Heidi the Swiss Miss) in the garden in front of our hotel.
and my beautiful wife Lisa, resplendent in the soft light with her freckles and blue eyes.
These portraits were all taken with a Nikon D3 camera. For Ajax, Rudy, and Jessica, I used a 70-200 f2.8 AF-S VR2 lens. For Ernesto, Carla, and Lisa, I used an 85 f1.4 AF-S G lens. For Craig, I used a 24-70 f2.8 AF-S lens. Processing was Lightroom only. No photoshop.
Last, a quick apology to Dave, Dennis, and Sue. I had hoped to take a portrait of everybody on the trip. With all the bike riding, exploring the towns, and enjoying the scrumptuous meals, I didn’t get all the portraits done. Hope you liked the bike photos, though!
