This was an accidental picture as I was taking out the camera, but this picture is so intriguing to me for a number of reasons. First, it is an unexpected glimpse of my hand, glove, handlebar, garmin, and tire in the middle of what was a very isolated warm-up ride in a very rural part of the area (I was passed by maybe 5 cars the entire time I was on the Clemson side of I-85). Second, there is so much of the picture that is out of focus and/or warped because of camera movement, but there is a section of the road that is nearly perfectly in focus and you see the cracks in the pavement, small rocks in the asphalt, a couple pieces of pine straw on the wet pavement – and for some reason that makes this picture capture more of the essence of the ride then your typical scenery picture.
