My brother and cousin love riding dirt bikes and I’m used to tagging along with the boys. So, a couple of weekends ago we made our way to the Ozarks for a few hours on the trails. I packed up my camera and took off behind them on the 4-wheeler. I realized within a few minutes of racing to keep the pace, I would not be shooting much of our journey that day. It’s a bit difficult to ride hard and shoot at the same time. But, I was ok with not shooting every moment. I saw the sunlight hit the dust just after being kicked up behind the bikes. I enjoyed the scenic trails that ran by tall cliffs and gentle streams. I delighted in the adventure and exhilaration of seeing the boys in action. More than the few shots I was able to snap, this day was about simply savoring the ride with my favorite guys doing what they love to do.
