    Today's Ride

    We are in the middle of Indian Summer here in SW Ohio, and it was a great day for a ride. The girlfriend and I rode about 250 miles today, following the Marshmallow ride format. We took some new roads today and even had to stop to orient ourselves at one point. We enjoyed a ride along the Ohio River, and the hills that border it. Very nice uncrowded roads. I hope you like the Pictures.

    You've got a major way with landscape photography.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    The boat ramp here is located on the Ohio River where there are 3 major islands. The main channel can be seen in the background. This was an ambush point for the indians when dealing with the settlers in the late 1700's. You can see that the first island has a narrow channel here. It is the same for the other two islands that I need to get from a boat. The Photo of the river barge shows the main commercial traffic that runs the river. Imagine 100 semi trucks, and that is what is carried by the average barge/ towboat. This is a truly beautirul area, and if the trees were removed from the hills, you could see how rugged and steep the area along the river truly is. I love photograhy, and if I ever win the lottery I will be travelling by motorcycle documenting the wonderful views every where I can and share them with everyone I can. Thanks for your encouragement and compliments Dave.

    I use a Fuji Finepix S602 3.2MP camera. It is just a consumer model, nothing really fancy. I dont touch up my photos, I try to let them stand for themselves.

    Very nice

    Great pics. Man, I do love to ride in the fall in Michigan. I like it when the air is crisp and you need a jacket.
    Thanks for sharing the photos.
