Today’s weather was lovely, and Autumn and Henry were just sitting around the house, so I decided to take a short ride. I packed up the Leica M8, the Ultron 2/28, and the Color-Skopar 3.5/21 and hit the road. I wanted to take some shots of the GS on the bridge in Juliette, so I took a circuitous route there. As I awaited Giles, I walked around with the M8 and took some shots, switching to the 21mm for some. I liked the couple of shots I took on the bridge, but this one is probably my favorite.
The photos I took with the river in the background came out with the BMW R 1200 GS too dark. The levels are always off this way. However, the river seems to act as a huge reflector, so the colors and available light on the above photo seem perfect to me.
