Another stunning photo. If that doesn't make us want to get out and ride, I don't know what would.

I can't decide if the picture is an advertisement for Thorn or for Scotland.

Thanks, Dave. About 10 minutes after taking that, I headed off road on a track called The West Island Way. Came across a very peaceful resting place where it was so silent I found myself holding my breath in case I spoiled it.

Love the colours.

But I can't find the bike in the picture...  :)

Lovely! The first one is brochure cover-worthy.

All the best,

Another cyclist with a great eye for photo composition.  You and Rual do have an advantage because of where you ride but nevertheless you have used the lines in the landscape perfectly.

Many thanks for the kind words.

jags, the bag is a Topeak MTX - quick track. Probably one of my best buys.

All the best.

Brilliant!  Snow-covered landscapes here in Ottawa, and it was -18 last night, so this cyclist ain't cycling.  Sunny cool days, though, and that's good for the maple syrup harvest to come :) 

Dave, any photos of the Gulf Islands, following playlord's lead?

Sadly, no. But I'll try to get a good photo of Vancouver harbour from the Lion's Gate Bridge when the weather is better.
