|The retention pond about 1/4 mile from my office at work.|
Sometimes on my bicycling adventures I come upon a visual experience that I have to stop and capture. On Friday, March 31, 2017 on my way to work I ride down a gravel alley just before I reach the university campus where I work. I pass this retention pond that sometimes has a bunch of ducks or geese hanging out. The sky was covered over with low dark grey clouds for most of my short 4.68 mile commute. Right when I got to this pond a few rays of sunlight poked through to present this wonderful view. I had to stop and capture it.
One thing about my photography is that it has sort of de-evolved so to speak. I use to carry around a cutting edge digital SLR when they first became affordable for me. I have since resorted to just taking photos with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5. For me sometimes it is more important to be at the right place at the right time than it is to have all of the fancy cumbersome gear which may become an obstacle to getting the right shot. What I have found is that I have had more opportunities to see beautiful landscapes from my bicycle than I have walking or riding in a car with a lot of photography equipment.
Oh and since this is a bicycling blog posting here is my ride data.
