The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

Even thought I carted around my backpack of kit today, I just used my Sigma 17-70mm  Work horse lens.  I wasn’t going to do the HDR thing today but as a rule I like to bracket my exposure anyway so at the very least I have the frames if I want to use them.

I took the bike today as it was nice and sunny and cool enough for the High Viz jacket but not so cool that I couldn’t wear the mesh armor pants.  I figured North of Belfountain would give me some good results and some interesting riding.  As the road quickly turned to packed dirt, it was a good choice.  Of course the previous day’s rain made everything a little soggy.  Which I don’t mind.  There were even some steep hills to climb.  They were pretty washboarded so it was up on the pegs, knees on the tank and tally ho!

Not too bad, I’ve ridden on worse. I’ll take muddy to sandy any day of the week.

A wider shot of the tree. The light was coming in at just the right angle. Very little wind kept everything petty sharp.

The pond is on private property, not that I could have gotten to it anyway.

An abandoned Mill just outside of Georgetown. Apparently it was the first mill to employ the use of its very own Dynamo. The info sign says there’s still the ruins of the powerhouse about 3 Km downstream. Of course this being Ontario it’s on private property. This site is up for development. It looks like it’s being zoned for a mall of some kind. I hope they opt to keep some of the external walls. But knowing progress… no such luck.

I’ve got a real soft spot for wild grasses.

I rode back home down Winston Churchill, which isn’t the most interesting road but sometimes it’s just nice to feel the bike purring along underneath you  It’s been a bit of a lean year for riding the bike between work and such.  Next year looks like I’ll be doing the Translab finally as my Mum wants to meet up with me in Happy Valley.  That’ll be a few thousand Km of gravel.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody.
