It’s done! The photos from Sunday’s Okanagan Shuswap Century Ride have been posted to the website. I am really pleased with how the images have turned out and I hope you will be too. There are a lot of photos, and I know it can be a bit intimidating wading through them all, so I will try and break it down a little for you. The photos come from three main places: the start, the first big hill on Salmon River Road, and the last big hill coming back from Salmon Arm on Knob Hill Road. Only those riding the full 100km will be in this last section.
Prices are the same as last year: $8.00 for a digital download, which is great for Facebook and emailing, 5×7 prints are $12.00 each, and 8×10 prints are $22.00 each. There are also discounted package options available for a digital download and a print of the same image. Ordering a 5×7 print and a digital file as a package save you $3.00, and an 8×10 and a digital file saves you $4.00. As a new offering, I have also included some larger sizes that are printed on archival paper using archival inks.
This year I have moved my hosting to Photoshelter, and so there are a few new bells and whistles that I hope will make life easier for you. One option that should make deciding which images you want a lot smoother is the Lightbox. As you are going through the images, if you see one that you like, just click the “Add to Lightbox” option in the upper right-hand section of the page. This is not that same as adding it to a shopping cart, and simply saves the image to a collection so you can review them later. If you register for a free account, you can retrieve the Lightbox images days or months later. If you don’t want to register , that’s fine too, but you will lose the Lightbox contents when you close your web browser. Using the checkout should be pretty straight-forward and is similar to many eCommerce sites on the web.
A huge thanks to Lisa Jaffary and all the volunteers that make this great event possible. Also, thank you for your support over the years. Your purchases enable me to come back to the Century Ride each year and keep these images up on the web. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
