Photo Of the Month: Mike, early morning trail running shoot, Chamonix.

It's all about the trail running at the moment it seems, what with covering the UTMB for The North Face recently, I seem to have become accustomed to seeing faces of pain and anguish. Not so for Mike, local trail runner who stepped up to the mark with a smile for a client backpack shoot this month. I had the location planned out, but every now and then luck plays its hand, adding the early morning mist for atmosphere. Of course if we'd just been lazy and stayed in our beds another hour we would have missed the early light that lets us photomonkeys capture this kind of aspirational stuff. That said seeing Mike leap rock to rock high on an exposed ridgeline, didn't make me long to don running shoes. I'll stick to the bike. Nikon D3s, 70-200 2.8 VRII.
