Climbing the Alps

Welcome

Welcome to davidt fine art photography

A new photographic poster collection entitled Climbing the Alps is now available. The new collection depicts some of the iconic climbs of the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps
From the Stelvio Pass to the Col du Galibier the new collection captures the fundamental beauty and grandeur of the great alpine climbs  
The Prudential Ride London road cycling weekend extravaganza included a 100-mile sportive with 25,000 riders and it didn't rain once. It was a beautiful day with only the sound of birdsong and the murmur of cyclists wheels on tarmac together with the occasional gear change to be heard
The fine art cycling photography collection "Chasing the Rainbow" includes Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish and Lora Trott, together with the TeamGB pursuit and sprint teams destroying the opposition at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in London earlier this year
The Cycling Box Hill collection of fine art cycling photography casts a softer, more romantic eye onto the world of road and sportive cycling, with a series of iconic cycling pictures from the equally iconic Box Hill in Surrey. Now a mecca for the cake eating cycling fraternity of South-East England and beyond
The Fine Art Film collection features fine art landscape and seascape photography with pictures from across Britain, Europe and Africa using traditional medium format film
The fine art photography featured on print or canvas is usually part of a fine art limited edition. All are hand signed and dated with
the edition number directly onto the print or canvas and supplied with Certificates of Authenticity 
Editions are limited to between 5 and 500

Climbing the Alps

You spend months training, weeks preparing, days getting there, hours climbing, and what do you get for all of that effort and endeavour? When friends and loved ones ask,
especially the ones who don't understand why in the first place, where exactly is it you're going/been? what was the name of the place again?
Why are you doing it again exactly? What do you do - show them a picture on your iPhone?
But does that cut it? Do they really understand?

Climbing the Alps

Time to be recognised as the hero/heroine you are. Time to say, Yeah I did that. Put these pictures on your wall and you'll never need to justify or explain anything ever again. Just answer questions like "Wow! is that where you are going/been? OMG did you really cycle all the way up there? That's amazing! And, when's your next trip, can I come too?
Climbing the Alps is for all the crazy people who, for whatever reason, think cycling up a mountain is something worth doing 
Which of course it is - because when you get up there - this is waiting for you

The Catch

The Catch

The women's track cycling team pursuit is like all track cycling pursuit races, it's about the time, but sometimes something more important comes into play. It wasn't that TeamGB caught and passed the Chinese pursuit team, that was expected, it was the way they did it and what it revealed felt like history in the making

The extra time it took to go around the outside of the Chinese pursuit team almost certainly cost the girls the team pursuit title but the psychological impact inflicted was far harder to measure. Up until that point, the Chinese team had stuck to their schedule and kept their formation intact, once the catch was made the team simply imploded as the lead rider attempted to match the pace of TeamGB

Upping of the pace to match TeamGB combined with the almost tribal roar of the home crowd was too much, and, within half a lap, shattered the Chinese team formation. Scattering the other team members all around the velodrome and eventually finishing in total disarray. Each individual track rider finishing the distance alone, demonstrating to everyone present that absolutely no one messes with our girls

Chasing the Rainbow are Olympic cycling champions Laura Trott, Elinor Barker, Ciara Horne and Joanna Rowsell-Shand

Vive la France

Vive la France

The French cycling pursuit team have to be the most stylish cyclists in the world, the track team are nothing less than a complete living, breathing, work of art in motion. Every detail of their kit, from their socks to their bikes is beautiful. When it comes to equipment or kit I don't covet much, but the Look track bikes have to be the most beautiful bikes in the world, bar none, so I will make an exception. I want one

Welcome to the Velodrome

Welcome to the Velodrome

As we all stand, stamp, shout and cheer for our track cycling heroes in the electric atmosphere of the velodrome, imagine the world-view of the fittest and fastest track guys in the world as they ride beyond the very edge of their abilities to achieve greatness

The Team GB cycling pursuit quartet is down to three and this is the last lap, every 1000th of every second is vital in this effort, the fastest time of the year so far. There is no hiding place, the velodrome has turned from a cycling dream of speed and glory into a mental and physical torture chamber and only when every last drop of energy and vitality has been wrung out of every muscle tissue in the body can the attempt be considered adequate

In this precise moment, everything is forgotten, nothing else matters, not a single stray distracting thought can be allowed to enter or exist in the mind of any of the riders now. The brain is silenced of its endless whingeing of pain thresholds and necessary physical limitations and is instead put to use searching every last crevice for the useable energy needed to fuel the final push to the finish line. With the possible exception of Wiggo, (centre) who's probably just deciding what to have for his tea

Chasing the Rainbow are Jon Dibben, Owain Doull and Sir Bradley Wiggins. (Fourth man Steven Burke)
