There is something special about May in Baltimore - and returning every year to Pimlico Race Course for the Preakness Stakes has a lot to do with that.
It's always a challenge trying to see such a large event with a fresh view. While it's necessary to capture the same type of photographs year in and year out - to keep yourself and the team on their toes when something new does present itself - everyone is still always looking for the next best horse racing image.
Teamed up with Getty Images, as always, I roamed the stalls multiple mornings before, combed the grandstands for features on race day, and shot a dozen races throughout the weekend.
We changed up some shooting positions this year and I really enjoyed seeing the big race at a different angle.
And despite some technical difficulties, I had another fun year along the rail. It will be exciting to see if California Chrome can capture the Triple Crown with two wins already in the bag.
