Flash captures speedy Tyler Farrar in Tour de France

At right, Tyler Farrar, of Wenatchee, pulls the Garmin-Cervelo team en route to winning the team-time trial of the 2011 Tour de France's second stage on July 3, 2011, in Les Essarts, France. The win put the overall leader's yellow jersey on Thor Hushovd of Norway.

Getty Images photographer Bryn Lennon used an off-camera strobe (flash) to capture Garmin-Cervelo racing by in the 2011 Tour de France's team-time trial. An assistant held the strobe aloft with a boom high and to the left of Lennon. The quick duration of light flashed by the strobe freezes the action. The background and riders on the tail of the pace line fade to dark because the output of light from the strobe falls off after a certain distance.
