A Valkyrie goes to work way too early in the AM
It's Wed, May 2, 2007.

It's 4:20 in the bloody am.

What on EARTH am I doing awake?

I'm not sure what happened on this particular day that woke me up at this ungodly time, but if I was awake anyway, I might as well have fun with it. So, in the spirit of Daniel Meyer I figured the best use of this insomnia was to jump on the Valkyrie, go for a ride, kicking - well - something, and taking pictures.

Lots, and lots, and lots of pictures.

By the time I'd gotten to work, I'd found that South-Central Ontario's got some amazing scenery at night and when the sun's coming up, and that a 1 hr ride can turn into nearly 3 hrs of fun when you're snapping pictures of everything in sight.

So strap yourself in, and let's go for a ride!

This is the Valk around 4:40 in the AM. It's hard to get a stable exposure at this time in the morning when the brain cells haven't completely activated...

Try #2

The Valk's a thirsty girl.

This is her "Feed me please" early morning brekkie look.

(Why does the motorcycle get to eat before I do anyway?)

Ok, time for some pre-dawn scenery - this was taken on the east side of Cambridge Ontario. I'm not quite sure where as I haven't figured out the zumo's tracking system quite yet, and I didn't have a direct route planned.

Shot on the move...

Here comes the sun!

timk519 05-06-2007 05:39 PM

Stop lights early in the AM...

timk519 05-06-2007 05:39 PM

On the move again - the long exposure makes for an interesting effect...

Yet another intersection

This should go in my "Farm and Country" thread.

timk519 05-06-2007 05:43 PM

More farm / country scenery as the sun makes its approach

timk519 05-06-2007 05:44 PM

Camera hog...
Gotta keep the ride happy
