6000 miles, three flights, 25 hours and I made it with five minutes to spare until first practice – TT 2012 is go!

A first few images below, with plenty more to come over the fortnight as usual.

Like every year, I will be out and about on most days, tweeting pictures live from the scene so make sure you follow me on Twitter for up to date pics as things happen. I’ll again be tweeting until the battery gives up.

If you prefer Facebook for your TT fix, visit my page there as all images going up on Twitter are also automatically posted there.

Next to that, I’m experimenting around with some other type of images and will also try to get the usual mix of stuff uploaded again – from paddock to riders and maybe a bit of racing fun, although as you might know by now, racing shots aren’t really my thing and I usually leave those to the guys with the big lenses.

So, let’s get going and enjoy another TT!
