Popcorn Ride

Monday, October 18th, 2010

I love fall, and we usually have spectacular foliage here in southern Indiana. Unfortunately this year it’s a bit lacking. We had a very dry summer, and so far fall hasn’t been much better.

Still, on Sunday I wanted to get out and hopefully see some leaves. It was a bit of an odd day though; with a high near 80 degrees, it felt more like a late summer day. And the sun was bright and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. A beautiful day, but the harsh sunlight was not ideal for photography.

The Popcorn route is one I’ve done before, and it’s very beautiful. By the end of the day I had ridden over 45 very hilly miles. All those hills made for some tiring climbing and some exhilarating downhills. It was fun and challenging. I’m not going to go into detail about the ride itself as it’s been covered here before.  I took some video, which I hope to post sometime this week. It might take me a while to edit it.

    Looks like another great ride. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    The photo 6th from the end looked pretty spectacular to me. The range of colors and texture is awesome. I’m still hoping we get a little taste of that around here. Only a few signs, in a few places so far…

    Yup. Y’all have some gorgeous countryside out there. Do you have a mount on your bars to take that in-motion shot 7th from the bottom?

  4. Scott Loveless Says:

    Do you have your camera mounted on the bars, or just hand-holding for the shots while you’re riding?

    Thanks for the comments. The camera is handheld, I keep it in a mesh pocket in my handlebar bag. I can access it very quickly while riding. Actually, many of these shots were taken while riding, but that’s the only one with visible motion blur.

    There are other options for keeping a camera accessible, too. This gives me an idea for a post, if I get around to it …

    More often than not I wear a button down shirt with a breast pocket. The point and shoot lives in there with the lanyard around my neck.
