    I had a great time breaking in my Tanaka 33CC this weekend. Chilly yet comfortable, I blazed a few sparcely traveled backroads. Couldn't run at full speed over the leaves due to hidden surprises. ( holes, rocks etc) Pic of wife standing at the bottom of a " steep hill". Stereo photography is a preferred medium to render images of slopes and hills accurately. ( for those familiar with free-viewing I can use 3D pics) Otherwise you'll have to trust me....that's a steep hill.:eek:

    Very cool! There are some parts of Oregon that are very similar to that right now. Usually here all the leaves are soaked and mushy...HAHA!

    Some day I'd like to see the east coast when the leaves are changing. It looks beautiful.

    Thanks for the pictures and the memories! I lived in PA (Venango County, 50 miles south of Erie) until 2000 and then moved south for my "career". I still get homesick for PA in the Fall. Thanks again!

    For a Desert Rat I have alway loved the fall. I worked up and down the Mississippi from Bimiji MN toward Clinton Iowa. Fall was the only time I would ever think of living where there are trees and water. Beautiful pictures. You got a couple of more weeks.

    What beautiful photos, I've been waiting for them. Thanks for sharing. Around here the trees go green, brown, bare. A trip to the NE is on my list of things to do. Next time get a picture of your bike in there so it can be put in a MBc calendar.

    Nice shoulders on the road, too. Looks like a great place to ride.

    3D Pic

    Here's what I mean by stereo photography. I'll post 3D pics now and then if some of you can see the effect.
    While looking at the 2 photos....relax and slowly cross your eyes until a third photo forms in the center. ( cross eyes s-l-o-w-l-y, form a third tree in the center, relax and hold......make sure to relax and watch the third photo in the center come into focus) See 3D?
    Some of you may enjoy 3D..if not you'll see what appears to be 2 flat similar photos. Might take alittle practice. I may post 3D ride pics now and then.

    i see it!!!!
    it works!!! pretty cool!!!
    now my head hurts.....:D

    didn't anyone ever tell you NOT to look cross-eyed? "they'll stick like that!"

    When we discuss hill climbing for example, traditional 2D pics " fall flat" and fail to render any perception of slope. ( search "stereo photography" and " image pairs" for info about creating such images) There are also viewers and glasses available that eliminate the need to cross-eye etc. But it's actually quite easy once you get the hang of it.
    Here's a few more practice patterns / pics. I'm going to attempt a few shots this weekend. Leaves are nearly down and it's getting very cold around here.
    Still a few sweet spots however.

    Showing hills

    Here's the start of Cemetary hill. I think you can get a feel for the grade even in 2D. It helps to have points of reference.
