Post bike ride photo session with Pongo. One of the things I have been frustrated with lately is so many Photo A Day images made with my iPhone since I always have it with me. I started carrying my Nikon full-time and wanted to see the difference without much editing between them. This is the Nikon and had much richer colors

The iPhone had the shadows more open straight from camera.

The Nikon is my 10 year old D7000 and my hiking lenses. (Read slow and plastic) This image required opening shadows.

The iPhone handled the back lighting way better. Ugh.

Part of the reasoning is the longer lens, iPhone digital zoom is terrible. But at least Pongo looks great in fall colors ; )

A pretty day to ride. After the ride the winter indoor session started, Dennis and I played well together, won the first set 6-4, lost second 2-6 and won the third set tiebreaker 11-9

I went back to the site of yesterday’s CX race to ride the mountain bike trails

It was tough to follow the leave covered trails and they are not used much.
