Rainy day riding and photo opportunities

A couple of weeks ago I spent a few in San Luis Obispo, CA. SLO is a very bike friendly area with some gorgeous areas to go bike riding.

On a ride from SL to Morro Bay to Avila Beach and back to SLO I was caught in a major downpour. After the rain stopped I was gifted with the sight of some beautiful rainbows, including a “double” off the Avila Beach pier.









Today, the weather was a bit unstable-which is a perfect mix for dark clouds and even a “mini” rainbow. These photos were taken near Mugu Rock, on Pacific Coat Highway.

The pictures in this thread are WOW-worthy!

I love this thread; there are some amazing photographers in our ranks. I am not one of them, but looking at the pictures here inspired me to post some of my own “stuff.”

Hope you enjoy them!

EB, I think you underestimate your abilities, because those are some great photos!

Got back my first roll of film from my Minolta Autocord. I'm fairly pleased with the results, considering the foul weather conditions and my lack of skill with a fully manual camera.

Took some more pictures with my Minolta Autocord. I may sell this camera. It's interesting to use, but I'm just not sure how often I'll actually do that.

Arkansasgal, first off that's a great picture, and secondly I swear I'm not intentionally posting after you every single time, I just always seem to have a new batch of photos the same days that you post. So anyway, here's a few shot with Kodak Portra 400.

I'd like to know about that girl on the bike sculpture. There is a sculpture in my town on Main St that looks just like that!
