Triathlete in Training

Birch Creek Road, Umatilla Co., Oregon

 A female triathlete is training for the bike portion of her competition by cycling many miles over the hilly country roads near the Oregon-Washington border.  My lens is pointing towards the setting sun, and the previous day when I first saw this I liked the color that was cast, and I wanted to use a telephoto lens to compress the undulating hills and row of telephone poles.  It was just my good fortune to have a bike rider on the same road when I came back with a camera the next day.
