My girlfriend loves windmills and so whenever I run into one, I try to get a shot of my bike and a windmill in my rides. As it was National Windmill Day in the Netherlands last Sunday they’re all looking at their best now :)
I’ve got my set complete! New Michelin tires on the bike, a new shirt, I upgraded my helmet to the Giro Synthe (not the MIPS edition), got some new sunglasses and new shoes: the NorthWave Sonic 2 Plus. With the Garmin Edge 820 keeping score and track, I’m looking forward to a very interesting new season!
And of course on the back of my shirt my avatar: the bearded espresso sipping hipster ;)
As for the photos… I’m a bit bummed that I shot them in 1/15th, but running to and fro on cycling shoes, grabbing and parking the bike and keeping in time with shutter-release I forgot to reset them to 1/250th in the end :( Better luck next time.
It might seem a bit like an addiction, or that I’m a bit nuts… both are probably right. But hey… as long as we have good weather and there’s some light to go out cycling after work… why not? So after yesterday’s 120km ride, I took it a bit easy tonight and stayed just onder 60km. The views were gorgeous again.
I really ought to get back to shooting the X-Pro2 soon, it’s just that on sunny Sundays like yesterday the Bianchi is way more attractive then any camera could ever be. And the iPhone 6S might not be as good, it is light and as it’s used for GPS-tracking it’s also always with me. So a few more iPhone shots from the road then!
A small sidestep from a normal blog-post on photography, but as I often take a camera (the iPhone as a bear minimum) with me on rides and there will most likely feature a few more photos of my road bike on the site, I thought I’d introduce the new addition to my arsenal of bikes (there are 4 or them now).
