    The drummer is really great @Yukirin

    I've also had my share of 'fun' trying to take band shots in small dark venues. The aesthetic definitely works for heavy bands, thankfully. All taken on X100, 1600 iso, 2 stops under exposed.

    Strongly inspired by Stefaan Temmerman's work with Amenra.

    Amazing day out, as always. Went very prepared which we were glad of, stayed mostly dry and warm despite 3 hours on the hill in the weather. Quite funny that it was blue sky by the time the presentation happened, will probably add to the legend of the day as the stories of the conditions get more and more outrageous.

    Shame that Tom and Bithja missed out on a sub-3min and sub-4min respectively, but I suppose that's an incentive if it's ever held there again. Was sad not to see a forum skinsuit either, but still lost my voice with all the cheering.

    Saw some pretty worrying looking people being held/carried back down, hope that everybody ended up OK. Shout out to James Hartley, who we sat next to in Grasshopper in Hope, 3rd Junior and 16th overall.

    They’re a more generous fit than true road shoes from Giro, at least in my experience with the Empire SLX. These feel pretty normal through the heel and the mid foot, but they’re larger in the toe box, and they’re more padded at the ankle presumably because they think people are more likely to want thick socks or to wear them through the winter. They’re definitely somewhere between a CX shoe and an MTB shoe and I’d say they’d be perfect for commuting, although Shawn has just paid for both, so these are gone I’m afraid!

    I feel you. I think I’ve probably had six or of seven over the years.
