It’s been about six weeks since my last bike ride. I don’t like to ride when temperatures are below about 60 degrees, which they have been except for one or two days during this time. When it looks like warmer days are over, I hang up the bike.

On my final ride of the season I brought my Olympus OM-2n along. One particular route of about eight miles takes me down some beautiful country roads here in southeastern Boone County. This tree tunnel is on one of those roads.

  1. I used to work with a woman whose only transportation was her bike and she rode it four seasons. Riding in snow and cold doesn’t sound at all pleasant to me!

    Pretty picture!

  2. Roger Meade says:

    A beautiful spot on that road. I love the color of fallen pine needles, but they can be very slippery for foot or wheel.

  3. Jim, wonderful scene, so evocative of autumn in the northern states. Well done.

    The 50mm ƒ/3.5 OM lens is a superb optic, both for close-up and distant scenes. Rick Oleson told me that it has an internal floating element to control aberrations at different focus distances. I use mine with a Fuji digital camera, but really should find a cheap film OM camera.

    • Thank you! I photographed this scene many times this year but this is the best image by far. I love that 50/3.5 lens. I imagine you could get an OM-1 for not much scratch.
