Today is day #4 of the 2012 30 Days Of Biking challenge:
It was a cool and mostly cloudy day, but I got out for a short ride at lunch, perfect timing to catch a bit of rain in the last two miles.
I generally try to avoid riding in the rain, but once I’m in it, I enjoy it, and this shower was pretty mild, starting as a sprinkle, raining lightly for a bit, then letting up after the roads were wet.
This photo was intending to show a nice rooster tail spray for the tire, but by the time I got set up to take the shot, there wasn’t a lot of water left on the road. So the picture wasn’t as dramatic as I’d hoped for, but I hope you get the idea.
I like the way the damp asphalt looks like some sort of glossy, shimmering, liquid surface, with just the slightest bit of spray coming off the wheel…
