Let There Be Light

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin 2012 - 3180
The Nordic winter sun leaves us with no more than a low lazy light during most of the day. However the few soft winter rays that reach us allow for beautiful pictures with deep colours if you are lucky enough to have your camera at hand and a little time to shoot.

I especially like it when the suns draw a fine line of light around the subject as to underline that the rider is the main character of the picture.

Even the smallest drop of yellow helps bring a picture to life.

Here the contour is so thin that it barely catches our eyes - but it makes all the difference. And the best part? Riding on a such sunny winter day reminds us that now we can look forward to two summers and only one winter! Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin 2012 - 3111
Happy cycling!

These photos illustrate the primal and pristine beauty of riding a bike in 'adverse' weather (as some consider it), and is a badge of pride for those who commit to it as a lifestyle choice!

Sadly, since the temperature has dropped below 35F, even the lonely few riders I have seen in the mornings are absent; it's pretty much just ME, now, where I live.

Fine photos; and the one with the coffee drinker is more than that - it's beautifull.
