Hey, as well as taking pics, I am also an avid Mountainbiker. I have been taking my portable IXUS 65 out with me lately as it's easy to smnuggle into my bag and doesn't add much weight. The fail though is it has no manual controls at all which I find very frustrating. When I stop buying bike bits for long enough, I am thinking of grabbing a 50mm lens for the 20D and a small bag to put in my biking gear and trying to combine the two hobbies a little more. Hard though sometimes when you are enjopying the track a little too much to stop or backtrack. Anyways here are a couple of shots close to home (Wellington) off the IXUS. 1- Blown Whites - akk at no exposure control 2- 3- 4- These were all taken on the go so little though taken on the photos themselves, thought I would share all the same and can't wait to get my proper gear out there!
