Chasing Cloud Shadows

On one of my recent rides
I had a following wind on the way back. The road was straight and flat and I noticed that although it was one of those beautiful days when the sky is in motion and all seems right with the world, I always seemed to be in the shadow of a cloud overhead. Then I realized that I and the cloud were traveling South at approximately the same speed (18 mph). I speeded up a bit and started to reach the forward edge of the shadow. Slacked off and that edge moved ahead somewhat. Never experienced that before.

Nice... that's one of those interesting and novel things that can happen when you go out. I wish there were clouds around here right now...

Lovely pictures.

You should have put the effort to chasing down a rainbow. I hear there's a lot of money in it.
