Most medications include some lawyerish words that say something about “take as prescribed.” I can see that, despite being back to riding outside, my cycling has taken on a bit of a “ride as wanted” air. There is nothing at all wrong with that, but I must learn to accept the pitfalls (weight gain, increased pant size, lack of fitness, etc.) that come with such a slack attitude. Thankfully I wanted to ride on Tuesday, because despite the crisp, not all that spring-like air, the 25 miles ride in the sun was just what I needed, and nature rewarded me.
No, not with photos of an earth pig (like the intro pic), but of a bald eagle flying overhead in the brilliant blue March sky. Funny thing was, just about before, I was mumbling and cussing to myself about how I missed out on a pic of a red tail hawk. It’s not the greatest shot, but shooting with the Fuji XT-1 means that autofocus is a roll of the dice. thankfully it all worked out.
It was a nice morning in the saddle, and I even had the chance to experiment further with shooting video. As things warm up and my rides start to vary more I hope to continue shooting come shorts out on the gravel roads and in the woods riding and hiking.
