@ jever98: That pic was taken several hours ago, when I posted it. Certainly wasn’t doing RAMROD, just took the pic of Mt Rainier from where I was. Beautiful day.
You did the Ramrod route on Saturday? Good for you. Was the weather ok?

@Cal: a bit of drizzle and wet roads in in places, but overall pretty ok.

Sheesh!... how much fun was that trip! Love those pics. Took the liberty of cropping my favorite just a bit...

Lacoon's original composition is much better. The position of the rider perfectly hits the rule of thirds, while the blue space balances the image and creates the impression of scale and depth. Cropping so the rider is central makes the surroundings look small and the image cluttered.

@Lacoon , your eye is amazing - that mini-ravine pic is also particularly brilliant.

Everyone else has already said it but great photos lacoon!

I thought the first one was incredible and would be hard to beat but then I scrolled down and wow! Nice work and what a great cycling location.
Nice bike... you ever take it off any sweet jumps?

Google photos decided to pano my weekend ride shots and cut off the bottom of the bike. Doesn't look too bad. Windy as f***.. Bike nearly blew over and riding back through the city was a bit scary with the deep wheels. Image
