Yesterday, I took the Super9 out to play. I had fun practicing taking different pictures with the T2i. These three turned out rather well. I still have a ways to go in reading the manual and a lot to learn! It has been quite fun so far.
After work today, I took the SV650 down Lilydale Road. The road runs along the Mississippi River near downtown St. Paul. Due to the recent flooding it has been closed for the last few weeks and under several feet of water. A friend mentioned it was open, so I had to go take a look.
The bridge above is the Smith Avenue Bridge also known as the “high bridge”. It is over 160 feet tall which is the highest bridge in St. Paul. The photo was taken from Lilydale Road.
Lilydale is still covered in dirt even though there are obvious signs that they have been trying to clean it. It’s quite a beautiful ride with the river on one side and Pickerel Lake on the other. The road itself is quite straight and not very exciting, but it feels like you’re riding down the river. Very scenic.
For these videos I used my new RAM handlebar mount with the GoProHD. It was a little bumpy, but I think acceptable. The GoPro chest mount is still my favorite. What do you think? What camera angle should I try next time?
