I took so many shots for this challenge. I tied a tripod to the side of my bike with mule tape and two boot strings. I am pretty good with rigging things so it was very solid. I rode around town for two days taking shots with my remote release and catching the attention of a lot of folks. They'd say "Cool set up!" I was amazed at how many shots did not come out right. I had maybe 5 choices out of around 400. I ended up with 2 and had a hard time choosing. Tough challenge.


Special thank you to all the "Long Shots" Teammates (no particular order)21.gif gg3rd, 21.gif Dr.Confuser, 21.gif Tommy_Mac, 21.gif RianBotes, 21.gif AlexKc, and 21.gif mitalapo for working so hard together and having such great advise! I really had a lot of fun doing this shot. I appreciate all the great votes and comments during this very challenging WPL division playoff week. Go Long Shots!

Here are a couple outtakes:

Truly magnificent shot! I kept thinking that if I tried this I'd fall off the bike -- so I'm glad you used a remote. :)

Huge congrats!

Yes, this technique is known, but still, in order to implement it you need to be skillful. Beautiful picture! :)
I really liked the colors, and the curve.

You made your mark!
