As I mentioned in the previous post, the Michigan weather has been anything but kind this winter. Freezing rain, slush, ice and the dreaded “wintry mix” seem to be the rule rather than the exception. Quality snow for fat bike fun or snow shoe romps in the woods elude me, and more often than not I’ve found myself indoors staring at my camera gear instead of outside logging miles and megapixels. Thankfully that streak ended recently and I finally got out for a short, damp road ride. Despite the road surface’s handicap, I was happy to be outside on my bike sweating off some calories with my camera.
I didn’t take a lot of shots during my ride, I don’t find road rides all that conducive for safe roadside picture taking, but I was happy with the ones I snapped.
For this ride I used my Fuji X-T1 and the 55-200 mm lens. As much as I love my Nikon D7100, the X-1 is my favorite camera for capturing rural Michigan, especially on dreary days.
Here’s a look at what I got over the short 22.5 mile loop. As always, thanks for looking.
