Congrats,Les.Again one of your amazing landscape. This also one of my favorite themes. I am always looking for lonely trees and such.
Btw, Are you always taking your tripod along on your bike trips?
Just out of curiosity, I wanted to ask you this since a long time.
Good luck. #4977852

Les Rhoades 10/25/2007 6:40:30 AM

To answer your question about the tripod; Yes, I always take it along with me. In fact sometimes I also take my monopod so when I get to my location I can decide which one I prefer. The monopod is lighter but does not offer the stability needed for super long exposures.
