the snow finally came. so it only came for a couple of hours, but it dumped a crisp and even two inches across the shire. since then, temperatures have been pretty consistently sub-zero and so the snow is hanging around.
yesterday i had fun in the snow both on the way to work and the way back.
today, a sharp bit on the valve hole on my front rim ate its way through the inner tube at the base of the valve and i had a walk for a mile before being rescued.
after being lent a tube by mike, i headed home and exactly the same thing happened again. the only difference? this time i had to walk 3 miles before my rescuer arrived.
time for half an hour on the turbo…
in the meantime, here are some pictures from the rides i did manage to complete on my way to and from work.
as usual, click to go to the flickr page and use the ‘all sizes’ button there to see it bigger
three of these pictures contain my first three attempts at light painting. it is a technique that seems to be everyuwhere at the moment and is a fun thing to. it is a bit more hands on than hdr, tilt-shift miniatures and the other photographic phases that seem to have come and gone
