Best photos of 2011

For a couple of years now, we’ve had a “best pictures of the year” thread at the end of the year. Post your favourite picture you’ve taken this year. Two or three would be OK too.

This is different from “Pictures of your latest ride” in that here you post only your very best shot(s). I wouldn’t mind a repeat from that or other threads in here.

One of my faves is this shot from Tiger Leaping Gorge, taken during the Yunnanuni unicycle tour through SW China, last August. 600 m down into the gorge flows the Yangtze River.

Thanks for doing this thread Klaas, I was just thinking about doing one.

I hope people stick with the same format- best artistic shots only, no blurry low res photos.

I’ll throw in my best from Tiger Leaping Gorge too:

Found it. That is awesome :smiley:

Haha Just posted this on Facebook! This is almost as good as the LARPing street view.

I really like this photo the most, really wish the lighting was a little better but overall I love the photo.
Sophia Pellmann took this one at NAUCC 2011

Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park, Washington State

We stopped at Ruby Beach July 19 after 59 miles in failing light. Went down to the beach giving Sylvia a chance to run on one of my favorite beaches. Part of the Washington Coast and Oregon Coast Unicycle Tour.

I mean like general lighting in the area, there was only one direction of flash when the photo was taken.

Sophia took some sick photos at NAUCC, here’s the best of me.

Perfect form! Pedal is on the rail, crank is slightly below and dragging! Now you just need to find an 11 set and go for it :wink:

For a change a race pic rather than Unitour pic. I quite like these ones from Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge and Karapoti Classic:

Are these taken in 2011? I think I’ve seen the picture with you riding through the water quite a while ago. :thinking:
