After the run is done: images from the 2014 UTMB

I just returned from a week in Chamonix where I was going to run the UTMB CCC and spend some time in the mountains, enjoying the atmosphere of this unique event. Since starting freestak, I have rekindled my love for taking photographs and Chamonix on UTMB weekend is an ideal place to try a few things out. So I set myself a challenge of capturing some on-the-fly portraits of people finishing the UTMB. I wanted to try to find the look that encapsulates the pain and exhaustion of running 160km with 9000m of vertical climbing, often over more than 40 hours, with the elation of finishing and seeing friends and family (and the prospect of a cold beer only a few minutes away!) Here is some of what I came back with:
