Rainbow (From the Saddle)

Filed under: Robert Hoehne — rhoehne @ 10:04


  1. Reminds me a certain uk cycling publication that had a reputation of being full of photo’s of abandoned bicycles.

    By the way, what were you doing with your city workhorse out there? It’s certainly a long beast, I have an old Jack Taylor tandem that’s no longer than that.

    Ah, I’ve just realised the ambiguity, you’re nearer to urbanisation than the rainbow aren’t you?

  2. From the saddle presumably meaning where the rainbow starts as opposed to you being in it! Is this wide angle or a stitched together panorama?

    The format certainly suits the shot and the composition is very well balanced. It feels very rural but the street lamps tend to indicate that this is not far from town or village. The use of the bike as a foreground object to set off the landscape is good.

  3. Rainbows never fail to impress me and I love the inner to outer brightness change.
    The picture does make that road look rather long, slightly uphill (bad) and a bit mundane.

  4. I travel this stretch of path everyday I ride to work, 16km uninterrupted path laid down when the state government made it a policy to build one on every new road that was built or upgraded. That didn’t last long. The path is actually 42km uninterrupted path beside a motorway, fantastic and a regular ride area for me. This,, is the same path about 8km closer to home.

    Most of the path winds up, down and under the motorway with some silly steep sections which keep it interesting. It winds through all sorts of areas, one part that makes it interesting is the smells that you pick up on a ride: Bacon and eggs, pancakes, soaps, aftershave, perfumes in the morning. Roasts, spices, BBqs in the evening and chicken farms, sewerage treatment (hold your breath) epoxy resins anytime.

    This is a stitched panorama. I picked up the idea of placing the name of the project in brackets from here.

  5. Count me impressed as well — a complete rainbow is a rare and beautiful thing and you have made it personal — all the better. Fine composition and light. I’d like to be riding there, too. Greatly enjoyed your description of the smells encountered.
