Day 4 — Short connecting ride linking two book loops

by | Jun 6, 2024 | 0 comments

I wild bivvied last night so was up early. Still took me ages to do the 30miles or so to Melrose. This is partly because I’m laden, partly because I’m unfit, but mainly — I tell myself — because of the stops due to photography.

Flew the drone a couple of times today, and — between the rain showers — also put my iPhone on a tripod to get these shots. One shot going away from the camera, another coming towards the camera. I use a remote control to take the pic.

And I often have to take multiple shots before I’m happy. These delays are why it’s best I ride solo.
