HCSA also puts on triathlons and chilly waters didn’t discourage the dedicated from participating in the HCSA‘s annual presentation of the Tall Texan Triathlon. It’s not a large venue but it is big on fun and the athletes are no less competitive.
I invited Edward De Almeida along to work with me. He and I have been collaborating on some events and he is very appreciative of any opportunity to get out and shoot. This was a good way to add to his portfolio and build on his sports photography experience.
We were treated to a “drone show” as well. Someone had brought one out to get some shots and footage and they were very skilled in flying the gear over the area. It would be cool to see some of the footage.
The first photo below shows to what degree some people prepare. Every move is detailed in a notebook placed in the transition area. The second photo is of Edward as he awaits the swimmers emerging from the 58 degree waters in their wet suits. These races have many facets to showcase as you can see in the photos below.
