Thats what I thought.
There is still a month of autumn.
Nice, we may try to replicate tomorrow evening.
It's pedal power this weekend.
You're doin' a fine job Kenny Banjo. Don't listen to what the rest of these reprobates have to say.
your pics are wonderful! thanks for sharing!
Stooopid are ya really goin to ANF? sand in the mangina.
not on new years!
I'm not sure that I'll get much riding in this week as it's cold and drizzly out today with rain forecast for tomorrow.
If the forecast remains good for next week I do plan to camp with the sand box boys down in ANF.
(I'm a fair weather camper in Dec)
It looks like an evening meal is planned for this evening at the 'banjo house.
I spied the fixin's for green bean casserole, mashed taters, stuffing, rolls and a roasting pan for a turkey breast in the kitchen. :dg
She made pumpkin and pecan pies a day or two ago and we cheated with those yesterday.
And happy Thanksgiving to you! Good thread goin' here; been following along. Bon appetit, and good riding!
Fantastic thread. Love the pictures and report. Been 15 years since I met Frank at TWO and Pete at the Dragon store. Need to get back there and discover the rest. Still have the hand drawn map Frank did for me and signed on my bulletin board. Would love to get back there and do another ride about in your area. Thanks for the time and work of posting.
This one , for hours
The ANF campout looks like a go. Except for a forecast of mid 20s when I'm due to get on the road in the morning, the weather looks like it will be good.
Have fun! I look forward to the next Banjo Files.
How's that back of yours coming along since the surgery?
I know the initial report was good, I hope you're continuing to heal well!
WOW Banjo, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this thread. The next time our paths cross could you give me some pointers on how you get all these shots.
Hey Jeff Thanks.
The beautiful thing about digital is that you can take lots and lots of pics and hopefully get lucky once in a while. (I should probably delete more than I do )
'banjo pic takin' 101:
When I'm riding I keep a point and shoot camera on "landscape" mode in my jacket pocket, tethered to a break-away leash around my neck and just snap pics on the fly like a fool.
What I've learned to do is "trick the light meter" to avoid getting a blown out or white sky.
Simply point the camera up at the horizon and push the button down 1/2 way, then drop it down onto the subject and finish the shot.
The brighter the sky is the higher you aim it for good exposure, if there are lots of shadows closer to the tree tops seems better so the shot isn't under exposed.
This not only "tricks" the light meter but it locks your focus on infinity, helping to prevent blurring while shooting "on the fly"
But that's really only good when looking at far away scenery, "quick draw shots" you just take your chances.... If the subject matter was real interesting, I like to stop and try to frame things up nice but it often seems like I just passed a truck when I see something like that and end up just passing it by.
