    Took this from my camera phone whilst struggling up a hill today near Tinahely. Surprised it came out so clear. The ideal would have been to stop and snap. Great day for a cycle.

    I got this one a few weeks back just as I was starting out.

    Couldn't take any today. Was too showery to be taking the phone out of its waterproof cover (sandwich bag).

    Excuse the ugly barrier! :-P

    Quality photos guys, looks like it was a gorgeous day out. I can only offer this, taken last June on the Military Road (Dublin/Wicklow), heading back to Stocking Lane.

    Its title is 'cycling in the clouds'.

    I spent a beautiful day cycling around Dingle last May, my favourite shot from the day is probably this one:

    (By the way, if anyone can tell me how to put a photo in here directly from flickr that would be great!)

    Looks like you had a nice trip last summer:)

    I don't know if a photographer can become a cyclist but I'm starting to believe that a cyclist can become a photographer... Here's another one http://www.flickr.com/photos/twowheelsnoengine/5527219600/ with some hale stone on the way back to Dublin

    A bit of RD and chain trouble today brought a halt to my cycle after about 20 km. Whilst awaiting the rescue team I amused myself by observing a ladybird on my saddle. As shown in the picture it seemed to have an attraction to the red stitching. I assume (wrongly?) that ladybirds are colour blind and therefore it wasn't mistaking the stitching for a mate. Any entomologists on here care to enlighten me as to the reason for its behaviour? TsIvL.jpg

    Wrap image tags without any attributes around the url of the photo.

    Great shots!

    @monkeyslayer - what camera were you using for those pics?
    Really, really nice.

    Here are some photos from my ride today, from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh to Etawah, Uttar Pradesh, Northern India (114km.) It was a pleasant bearable 36C after rain last night (it has been in the 40s for the last few weeks.) Nepal by the end of the week, hopefully will get a bit colder up in the hills.

    That first one looks like a field in North County Dublin and the third one is definitely Dollymount!:)

    You'd feel warm just looking at them.

    Thanks man, I'm using a Sony nex5 with a 16mm lens. I don't bring it out on spins too often as its bulky even for a compact dlsr and I tend to stop too much when I have it with me! Strap the camera bag on to either myself or the bike every once in a while tho

    Is that the "sweep panorama" feature that they had on the ads? Comes out really well, no "warping" noticeable (to photo noob like myself anyway)


  • Registered Users Posts: 850 ✭✭✭ monkeyslayer


    Yup yup, takes a little bit of practice but its great effect to have. I mostly bought it for its hd video capabilities and I could use my nikon lenses with it too. Fairly happy with it, really neat and powerfull little camera
