A 2- to 3-second exposure, and a higher f-stop number by the looks of it.

Thank you very much. I don't remember. 200ASA and a pretty closed aperture and long exposure. Wide angle lens at about 600 feet from the burst. Tripod and remote shutter release. Photoshop to darken the backdrop some. I have a bunch of cameras.
Here's more:

What's a "Shade Ride"? Is it a ride amongst the trees / forest?

Trust me...I'd love to be in your neck of the woods also.I cant even imagine the scenery where you live.The photos of the trail I ride on is very close to my front door and I see turtles,beaver,otters,rabbits,heron,and snakes quite frequently up and down that creek.It's a neat little trail that connects me to parks and neighborhoods to ride.

LOL, well it's not in a forest sadly, it a ride using a lot of the older streets thru the city that have BIG trees that give off lot's of shade The route seemed to incorporate a lot of our, normal streets we use to get around the city, when riding on our own!

Straight back at ya it's interesting how the rail tracks are banked for the corner, haven't seen that before.

Looks like a fun place to ride, that's for sure!

I rode my Rapid for an hour on my trainer in my basement earlier. I still can't walk, but I can certainly spin. It felt good to get back on my bike after just over a week's absence due to this sprained ankle. I normally dread riding my trainer, but it's never felt so good just to ride. Hopefully I can be back to riding outside within another week or so.

Today I rode part of the beautiful Henry Hudson trail between Freehold and Marlboro, NJ - about 11 miles round trip.
Best regards

I absolutely love those old city residential areas with huge old-growth trees. I grew up in an area like that, but sadly now live farther out in a subdivision with zero large trees, only a few smaller trees in the yards that are less than 10 years old.

Several errands to run as it's FINALLY been raining out here in Colorado Springs, after the massive fire the week before. I added a bit of ride down the Creekside Trail in Manitou Springs, CO. the photo is at a local park I like to stop at. What you can't see is the "creek" water is BLACK with the run-off debire from the Waldo Canyon Fire, SAD, it's usually very clear.

I was craving McDonalds breakfast so I rode up there this morning and snapped a pic on the way. Surprisingly, there was no bike rack?! Lol

Well, this wasn't today, but my hybrid took me past Calaveras Reservoir on a nice 40 mile ride from Milpitas to Niles to Sunol and back to Milpitas last week.

That's good stuff. Looks like a nice place to ride.
The water looks low but it looks like a deep lake.

I don't have pics of my trip to Walmart when I returned my old bike. Doesn't mean it didn't happen.

LOL, no photo's of my ride thru the Garden of the Gods today, I was totally taxed getting up the steep hills! The GoG is in great shape, the fire didn't effect it and the red rocks are beautiful in the sunshine! The only BAD thing about riding in the GoG is that the tourist can't seem to "stay out of the bicycle lane" when trying to get around the corners! (25 miles and lot's of hills).
