Some ride reports have several pictures. From this one picture I imagine a wonderful ride.

I want to ride up that thing this fall. Nice photo.
Just one? Didn't want your HR to fall below 190? Also, unretouched isn't a word.Kristin

Photogs would say the image is "untouched." Sorry, must take advantage of rare opportunities to pick-on your grammar. Beautiful shot, BTW. What did you shoot with?

I knew the moment I posted it wasn't a word, but I couldn't think of what the real word was. "Untouched" doesn't really apply, since it's not really the opposite of "retouched" in the photographic sense. I should have just said "not retouched."

I used a Canon Cybershot, DSC-P9. For this shot, I was coming down the hill and the saw the amazing light, so I stopped in the middle of the road and took the picture. You can see the three friends I was with if you look closely. You can also see sun reflecting off the southern end of San Francisco Bay. I took a whole bunch of shots on this ride. Maybe I'll post them at some point.
Please do! Nice pic. nmKG 361

Not retouched would technically be the most correct. However, "untouched," is the term actually used by most photographers--regardless of its accuracy.

Are you sure your camera isn't made by Sony? :-P
I like the pic, but...amflyer

Damn testosterone.
