Very easy 40km winter morning's ride around the bays in Wellington... well it was until it started pouring with rain. At that point I decided to tempo it back home!!

The tilt shift works really well on the first, second & last pictures, Adrian!

Ok, it's an OT, but as a photography ignoramus, explain how those pictures are done, Adrian? Breathtaking.

There are a lot of websites that can walk you through it based on your photo editing program, but the basic idea is a heavy blur filter on the upper and lower vertical 1/3 of the image.
Cheers Adrian, looks great!

Nothing special here since I'm just riding around some new local routes.
I'm too spent to do any post processing but it was a nice 165km ride. Not sure how many more rides I'll get like this for the season so I went for it.

... I think I followed the rules...

Cheers!! They are all just snaps from my iPhone. As jvanv8 has alluded to, the tilt-shift effect is all done in post-processing, which in this case was a couple of minutes using a preset that I made based on this tutorial http://lightroomsecrets.com/2011/06/til ... lightroom/.
The best effect is when you are either above or below the subject that you're photographing.

Last week i headed to Chamonix to do the Tour de Mt Blanc on mountain bikes. This is the third time i've done this loop and we've never had a problem with snow before...

Image

Image
-Yep - that's where we're going...

Image

Image

Image
- The snow actually made the descent from the Col du Salenton really fun. Just hang on for as long as possible

Image

Image
- We did actually ride a fair bit of the route

Image

Image

Back from Cham and straight to Dubai for work - Managed to take my bike so a quick spin this morning and got to see a desert sun rise - bit of a contrast to last week:

Super stoked to be back on the bike after some weeks struggling with pfeiffer's disease.
Took a buddy with me (on a full suspention mtb) who wants to take up cycling to watch me so that I didn't go too fast.
This was pretty succesful (a.k.a. average speed 13 km/h..).

Climbed up to the Klewenalp near lake Lucerne.

Image

Image

Most pittoreque place I had seen in a while (little chapel, small creek, flowers everywhere, some swiss cows, nice winding road)

Image

Image

The last km was off-road, and as I didn't want to risk a puncture I stole my buddy's mtb and rode to the top on my socks..

Image

Whilst he was carrying my road bike to the top.. (and back down) :mrgreen: :thumbup:
