Red moon and a sunset

After all the hype about the Red Moon, or bloodmoon or lunar eclipse of yesterday, the moon had quite a bit of stage-fright and didn’t really want to show itself. And when if finally did, I didn’t get the clear, sharp shots I wanted.

On the other side of the horizon however the sunset was beautiful and that did give some pretty nice shots. And it was really nice in my walk looking for the moon to see lots of cars and bikes parked next to the roads and in the fields with people all looking out for that bright red moon. Sort of a shared experience…

A stroll around the block

The evenings are getting longer and a quick walk out of Assen and into a little bit of nature is possible again!

Follow the yellow ‘brick’ road

Happy New Year ride

To start of the year well I had my first ride on the Bianchi on January first. Here’s to a new year with (hopefully) many more rides and lots of photos of the rounds, wherever I make them :)

First ride of the year – click image for full set

It was a mere 63km with a bit of rain, a tiny amount of sun and loads of glass on the cycling paths from smashed (beer)bottles. A mere miracle I made it home without any flats along the way. My personal condition at the moment is nothing to be proud about, but I’ll get to work on that now the holidays are over!
