Reading Half Marathon 2012

I had the great opportunity to be the Photographer for the Berkshire Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre at The Reading Half Marathon. The day was fantastic, perfect warm weather for both runners and spectators alike - perhaps a little too bright for photographers! In order to reach a wider audience I have put my photos on my 'cloud' so that they are freely available for download. If you like what you see then you can visit the MS Therapy site by clicking this link and here you can support their work if you wish to. Please read the following before you rush to the photos - it will make life easier for you! All the photos are stored on my Cloud Drive, which is available 24/7 without any need to email or any contact. Although it is possible to access my Cloud Drive using a smartphone or an ipad, these will probably be relatively slow - a 'fast' computer is best. When you click the link below you will be taken to a folder called Reading Half Marathon 2012 and within this are around 170 photos, mainly of BMSTC runners and supporters. You will see two ways of viewing the photos, list and icon, icon is probably the best. Depending on your computer, it may be a little while before the thumbnails appear and if you are impatient you could click on The Slideshow where you will see a band of photos plus a larger selected image (low resolution). You can make a note of the images you wish to download. Then go to the thumbnail of an image you would like and then right-click it. You can then click on 'Download'. Depending on your computer, you will then get an option to open or save the image. Your computer's default may be a folder called, suprisingly, 'Downloads'. You would be better to use 'Save As' and put the image(s) into a named folder - Reading Half Marathon 2012 perhaps? There may be many photos that you would like to download. If you try to download many at one go it may slow things down as the images are large, typcially 5 to 10 MB. Allow plenty of time and don't rush. The photos will be available for some time.

If you wish to use any of these photos in a publication you may do so freely - but I would aks that you add a credit 'Photo by Don Somner'.
