K..I LOVE this capture. The sky, the curve of the road, the archway. You picked the perfect spot to stand to capture this. I only wish I was riding along with the biker...wonder where she's(?) going..makes me want to follow.
Knowing you, you stood there for an hour waiting for the biker to come by..hope Russ had a snack with him!! #10220228
