Back from my holidays

Well, just a short post tonight to say that I'm home from the outer Hebrides. I cycled from Barra to Stornoway in 2 days, which was quite an achievement for me, as I've never cycle 'toured' before. So I wasn't sure how I'd get on with the panniers. But I'm a keen cyclist and I'm used to doing around 40 miles on an outing.

So why am I telling you this? Well, partly because I'm very chuffed ( and I gotta tell somebody! ), but also because I'm headed back to Norway this summer to cycle tour and make some photos. It seemed like a nice way to combine two interests.

Getting to see the landscape from a saddle, rather than a car window, is preferable. I know many photogs ( Inc myself ) who have spent ages driving around and not finding anything worth shooting.

Getting out of the car and heading for a walk will solve that. So too, will cycling.

Next week it's Epson 4880 arrival time. I'm looking forward to getting my studio all set up.
