Another extraordinary Storm Ranch ride is now in the books! Ride the Storm 2013 was held at the always stunning Storm Ranch just south of Dripping Springs, TX, on October 5th and 6th. The ranch was particularly beautiful this year because of some timely rain the area received for a couple of months leading up to our ride. Kris and Scott once again executed a flawless and highly memorable event over an area of the ranch we had not largely seen before, and it was simply spectacular! I told Kris that if Heaven didn't look a lot like Storm Ranch this year, I didn't think I wanted to go! As always, we'd like to sincerely thank all our volunteers for their tireless efforts, especially Howard, Julie, and Scott's Dad and Uncle, who made sure all the volunteers were well fed. And our sincere thanks goes to our vets, especially Doc Carter, who is going off to finish his career over the next few years so he can permanently return to Texas. Doc, we appreciate the many things you have done for us and taught us - we are better riders for it, and you will be missed. We look forward to seeing you back here whenever the opportunity permits. Without the volunteers and vets, we simply wouldn't have rides, and we all them all a great deal of thanks.
SPECIAL NOTE: I was experimenting with a new camera body at this ride, and the metering system saw things a little differently than my usual camera. You may notice that many of the images are a bit underexposed, but fear not - I have edited a few of them and I know I'll be able to make all of them look nice for you.
The images from the ride are divided into three galleries. This gallery contains images from the Sunday ride (both distances).
As a reminder, here's how the process works. The images you see in this gallery are "proofs". Once you select the images you want, Smugmug notifies me and I'll edit each image before sending it to be printed. So, don't worry about such things as exposure, red-eye, cropping, etc. - these things will be corrected during the editing process. Of course, the watermark will be removed and will not appear on the print you receive. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
NOTE: ALL IMAGES TO THIS GALLERY HAVE NOW BEEN UPLOADED (Wednesday, October 9 at 8:30 P.M.). ENJOY!!
Enjoy the images, and please let me know if you have any questions.
