On a weekend in mid-August, sunflower fields are in bloom. East of Denver, past DIA, between Monaghan and Hudson roads, it’s two miles of late-summer golden magnificence. One Saturday before 8 a.m., Reid Neureiter staked out in a field with a camera among stalks as tall as a small person.
Moments later, a few dozen bicycles whizzed by. The riders pedaledso furiously that they passed the spot where Reid crouched in about 15 seconds. They bike this 40-mile route looping just south of DIA each Saturday. And when the sunflowers are in season, Neureiter follows on his motorcycle with camera gear.
He’s a commercial litigator and trial lawyer for Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell, but during his off-time, he’s a cyclist, motorcyclist and sports photographer.
“I think most people know meas the guy who takes pictures on the motorcycle, rather than the lawyer,” Neureiter said.
