    2015 Ride Pictures

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I just want somewhere to post ride pictures. I know there are a lot of threads, but a lot of them are so specific, thought it was time for a new one.

    This year's new love, my single-speed Surly Krampus. I have a lot of seatpost exposed, but the Krampus is built with a very low rear end, and the sizing was a little funky compared to their other bikes. This is a size small, guess I could have built up a medium with a shorter stem.

    Anyway! My dog loves riding on this bike. The rack is a Pioneer Mountain Man, and it is easily removable so I can ride freely on the trails.

    I love ride pictures too! Here are two from me. I saw a sapsucker on the Sammamish River Trail on a ride a few weeks ago. A couple of days later, I got to talking with a fellow cyclist who was watching the sapsucker too. She turned out to be a wildlife biologist and she showed me the sapsucker's nesthole in a nearby tree. We have spent the last couple of weeks riding out to that area and sitting for hours, watching the parents feed their chicks, and finally, seeing the first one fledge last week! I was thrilled. Here are two pictures--one of a parent sapsucker bringing a great big bug back to a hungry baby, and another of the newly fledged chick opening its wings for the first time.

    It's in the Greenwood neighborhood, not sure of the cross street. It's a small park, but one of the few along that trail with water and bathrooms.

    One of the things along the trail I love is the public artwork.

    What kind of camera do you use? That can't be a cell-phone!

    Muirenn....i like your sunset image...and all the other images so far. hopefully this thread will give more of us a reason to want to take and share some photos.

    i use a digital rangefinder for it's small size and small but excellent lenses. i can easily fit what i need in a small topeck handlebar bag with room to spare.

    for as large a population density, i do feel fortunate to have as many places to see/feel nature's beauty and calm.....but then oceans and sunsets are always kinda like that

    These photos are all from an Iphone. Probably the worst camera phone I've had since my first cell in 2003.

    I googled Rangefinder cameras. Pricey! There were a few that were more reasonable, though. Any recommendations? I did find a blog outlining them. It wouldn't be soon, but it would need to be under $800.00 or so.

    I assume yours are sunrises, since that is the west coast.

    muirenn, a sony nex 7 was what started moving me away from a dslr. I like what sony’s been doing with mirrorless sensors and I’ve liked the image rendering of the Fujifilm cameras. Both have good camera’s in different price ranges. What i use now is because of the quality of the lenses and a camera with a sensor specifically designed for those lenses.

    Flickr is a good resource for looking through photos from a particular camera and/or lens. Just click on ‘group’ after a camera or lens name search.

    Thanks, I noticed the Fuji has some at a good price (relatively). Hadn't noticed any from Sony, but I'll check. Definitely thinking 'entry level.'

    Hiking pictures would be good, too.
