The End of Spring
The summer solstice marks the end of the astronomical spring, and while inspiration was hard to come by I did manage to capture a little bit of what spring is perhaps meant to be while out riding around... I think. Maybe.
The solstice marks the end of the astronomical spring and, as compared with spring last year it was, from where I’m sitting, largely defined by a complete lack of inspiration. The trails were busy, the roads were busy, and the beaches were rammed… when it wasn’t raining; stark contrast to the almost spiritual solitude I was able to find while out and about on two wheels a year ago. As such there was little motivation to carry a camera for those opportune snapshots, and at times little inspiration to go out at all beyond just trying to get some miles in to keep the legs spinning. However there are one or two snapshots kicking around on my hard drive that would otherwise never see the light of day, so now that is it officially summer I figured I may as well sling them up. I’ll do my best to have something more interesting for next time…
