    This was a fun way to spend an afternoon. But I had one major mishap that's never happened before: Somehow, after setting and checking metering, I inadvertently switched on bracketing mode. So for much of the eye dotting ceremony before the races, only 1 out of every 3 or so shots taken was properly exposed. :frown:

    The Coors sponsorship logo was even more glaringly juxtaposed with some of the surroundings than in this photo. I thought about PS-ing it out, but decided to be more impartial and leave it.

    Such is life in Coors country...
