On the road again -- Skywatch Friday


A couple of Saturdays ago we rode our bike north to a motorcycle rally and poker run sponsored by the Freemen, a sobriety motorcycle club from Anoka. The poker run took us along scenic back roads to a town called Pine City, along the Snake River. Leaving the Twin Cities toward Lake Superior, the lay of the land changes from water to a more wooded, rural area full of gentle twists and turns. And it was a perfect day--cool temps and beautiful blue skies. I took these shots on the back of the bike. [p.s. Dave won first place in the poker run with three nines!]

To see more awesome sky views from avid photographers and sky watchers, visit SkyWatch here. Happy Friday!

Very nice set of pics. They compliment each other, like 60´s split-screen movies...maybe with wild bikers...

What a neat trio of scenes! The mirror one is clever!

I'm green with envy.....we don't ride motorcycles, but I always think it looks like great fun!

Looks like fun! I'm glad you were doing the photography safely -- I was taking self-portrait shots in the car yesterday, only at stoplights, and that was more distraction than I could handle (lol).
