Photos from the road #2

Some new pictures for you from today’s (admittedly short) ride. Spring has hit us with full force and I for one welcome it with open arms. Temperatures are in their 20s again, nature is turning green and most of my jackets are slowly finding their way back to the closet.

As this post is numbered second, this must surely mean there was once a number one, right? Right! Here it is, if you’d like to take a look. The route I took today is actually the same, but you’ll notice some changes from the previous shoot. I’ve swapped, added and/or removed some of the components, the surroundings are livelier this time and there are two new spots alongside a returning one.

See if you can spot the differences and similarities and above all, have fun with the pics. 🙂

The dirt road follows a river which winds it’s way down from the hills. I tried capturing the scenery as well as the bike itself. If you’re looking for more info on it, click here.

The camera I use is a Canon EOS 600D with a budget Sigma 18-200 lens. Really nothing special, but it covers my needs without breaking the bank and not being too cumbersome. I’ve recently bought a smallish DSLR hip holster which I can sling across my back and take with me on rides and hikes. It’s not a perfect way to cycle, but at least I don’t have to use my phone to take pictures with.

As I was standing there, firing the Canon and minding my business, I heard the sound of hooves coming towards me. Turned out it was a trio of right foxes riding horses. Haven’t seen a sight like that in a while. 🙂

Soon after that it was time to saddle my own iron horse and get back home. Sunday lunch was moments away and not to be missed. 🙂
