I took this image a year ago while out on an outing with my brother Dan. I was sharing some of our back country roads with him. This one is Snow Camp Road off of Butler Valley Road above Korbel. As I recall, this was mid day, but because of the time of the year, the angle of the light gave that nice frontal angle. I used the 17mm tilt/shift lens for this composition.
About fifteen years ago I road this on my bicycle with a large group of riders. That was back when a fifty mile ride was fairly common for me.
