The Essence of Summer
I have been working on a video of Best of 2008 pictures.
This picture, in its simplicty, is the essence of a summer ride. Looking at it, I can remember the heat of the day, sitting on the sidewalk outside the DD's in Brattleboro, VT. I'd just finished another pass of Hogback Mt, a favorite passage from East to West. An iced coffee, my K75 and a sunny day. Life is good.
In the non bike category, this picture also encapsulates summer. My friend Rick relaxing on his hammock, the ski boat waiting, the sun glinting off the water. That my friend is summer. I think I'll sit back and enjoy the memory for just a minute.
