I have hit 4 straight weeks of riding early Friday AM. Honestly, since I changed jobs 3 years ago, that is a record. Sad but true. On this day it was glorious. Perfect. Beyond my expectation. Just me, my bike, my friend and the country. We also did the Rawland route in Goodhue County. It is my personal favorite route in the area. It has it all. This day was good for my mind, body and spirit. It showed me I can still put in some good hard miles every now and then. We made quick work of the route and I was back working in no time.
I chose a different path on the images. Even though the sky was perfect blue and the morning sun was warm, I chose to go really harsh blacks and over exposed whites with these images. I liked the clarity in the long shadows. I may do a second set sometime from this ride in color, but I don’t know. These just worked for me.
OK….I will leave you with final image in color. I don’t usually mix and match but this one really only works in color and it’s works in contrast to these with it’s color explosion. We earned that blueberry loaf.
