2017 Solar Eclipse Astrophotography

The August 21st, 2017 solar eclipse as seen from Elora, Ontario, Canada.  All taken with the P610 superzoom Nikon camera.  The welder's lens I was using as a dimmer fell and broke, so the eclipse got filmed through a shard.  I think it came out better that way. from Blogger…

Last Ride of 2017

A last double digit day before the snows fell meant one last ride at the end of November.  Photos all on the Ricoh Theta 360 camera.   It's hard to stay ahead of the dark this late in the year, so some pretty heavy photoshopping happened on these images (the Theta…

Riding the Roman Empire

Dangerously Close to Hipster Cool

The Concours customization continues slowly.  The (too short) Canadian riding season is staggering to a close, so I'm out on the Tiger whenever possible (3°C this morning).  Soon enough the snow will fall, the roads will become salty nightmares and I'll have lots of mechanical time on my hands.  Today…
