So thats what a ride looks like to an Ultegra shifter. I just thought this was kind of an interesting shot, Autumn has decided to show up in Western WA.

...for all the positive input. The picture was just an example of trial and error, I was using a Canon A70 with some manual features. It is difficult to pull a hand off the bar, have the camera setup, have everything level, etc. So I tried several times, turns out the first one was the best of the bunch, I can't take credit for the awesome scenery though.

That pic was taken with the equivalent of a 50mm at f/2.8 with 1/250 exposure. Using a Canon A-70 http://www.powershot.com/powershot2/a70-60/index.html
