David Ashdown's sports picture diary: Beijing Olympics - Velodrome
Friday 08 August 2008
David Ashdown was in Beijing covering the 2008 Olympic Games
This picture of British cyclist Victoria Pendelton was taken at the Laoshan Velodrome. She was cooling down after a practice session when I spotted her reflection in the mirror - it had this look as if she was coming out of water. I positioned myself ready for her to come round again and was able to get this image. Two Pendelton's are better than one I thought!
Picture taken on a Nikon D3, 170mm lens, aperture F2.8, shutter speed 1/400th of a second
