“The View Over My Handlebar…”


20141030_6794webThis morning was gorgeous again as I set out to get in a 20 mile bicycle ride. On the return leg I decided to record some of the scenery along the route, not with carefully composed and metered photos, but just pointing & shooting as I rode along. It is on days like these that I realize how fortunate I am to have access to these mostly lonely country roads, starting right at our front door. In this photo the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge is on the right. The terrain on the left is called Tiger Island – I have no idea why.
