Brigitta's turn for a Sunset Ride

I've not ridden Brigitta, my '87 BMW R80 Airhead for over three weeks now, basically ever since I've not had to commute anywhere to get to work.

I had been feeling a bit guilty about this but weather and some needed test riding on Scarlett, my 2014 Ural Patrol Sidecar Rig had prevented a ride on Brigitta until yesterday evening.  We'd had rains off and on all day it seemed, and the clouds formed a nice backdrop for the setting sun's golden rays.





Shooting pictures of one's motorcycle from a low frontal angle really does help make it look better, doesn't it?

Previously, a Sunset picture with Scarlett.

Dom, you excelled yourself with the sunset pics. I especially love the first one, with the long shadow.
(I might have to copy the style once I get the opportunity, if you don't mind.)

Isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery? :)

Thanks SonjaM for your kind words.

I'd have to agree with Sonja, beautiful photos. Working on your calendar entries?

I also like the low angle better. I haven't been riding to work either, but I did today. I don't like the low sun angle aiming at me as I head East, this morning was the first cloudy day for weeks

Some great photo's there. I to May try a few different angles with the setting sun. Very effective.

Another good subject for sunset pics. You sure do have pretty skies in Colorado.
