Snowy Cycle Ride (3rd February 2009)
During yesterday’s blizzard I considered riding out into the country and photographing some snowscapes. Today I bit the bullet and did it.
Each one is said to speak a thousand words, so they come first:
These were cropped and resized using Fireworks, applying different strategies for the settings. JPEG is really good for doing photos…who knew? (I’m still a novice, at best.)
- 2 pairs of socks.
- Combat trousers.
- Big coat.
- Wollen hat.
Combat trousers were the inner layer, tucked into inner socks. This was a bit of a squeeze but turned out to ensure a perfectly comfortable temperature, both when stationary and when cycling. When stationary I often needed my coat open. Whilst cycling, closed was usually best.
Same direction and start as earlier this year. Except I came back after reaching the humpback bridge.
