Assignment: Norcal Fall Photos
The timing is right and the colors are coming to a theater near you.
State the location and date of your photos.
They have to be Norcal and they have to be after today's date.
I had a Fall the other day and saw plenty of colors.
Some stars too!
*What's in it for us aside from bragging rights?
Can we go w/ macro shots or panoramics also?
You have given out too much Positive Reputation in the last 24 hours, try again later.
The reward for seeking out beauty is finding it.
Also, I'll buy some Pliny!!!
DUDE. I can't believe you are totally hi-jacking my Norcal Fall Photo Contest which lives on page 4, has already see 270 views and 4 posts (including mine and 2 from Jfritz who entered a photo but quickly retracted after getting hazed for using photoshop). That just stings.
OT: Demo was so awesome this weekend...still drooling.
I'll buy you a Pliny. You just need to show me some nice Fall trails.

After the wildly popular Summer Video contest (Summer 2010 Bike Video Contest anyone?, I do believe a photo contest is in order! Winners have a chance to be on the cover of Bike Magazine! (Probably a very slim chance as I have no connections what-so-ever other than being published once in their Letter's to Editor section...you really never know though).
So, here's how it works:
Submit your original photo in this post sometime on or before November 31st. After November 31st submission entries will end and MTBR members (such as you) will vote for their top three pics and enter their choices in this post. On December 15th midnight voting ends and votes will be counted and tallied. Winners will be announced December 16th.
-New photos only (honor system)...not something you made a few weeks/months/years back. (Although I have no problem with anyone posting old shots...however, this contest is about new/original).
-No slamming or disrespecting photo entries.
-Bike-related photos only.
-What did I miss?
Now, get out your trusty photo making machine, get your crew out on the dusty trails, find that perfect spot with the right lighting, and make some magic!
Here's a starter from last Friday.
This is right off Skyline Blvd, entering the Long Ridge trails of Saratoga Gap.

Saturday 11/6 in Fairfax
There are no seasons in NorCal. It just goes from sunny to cloudy, and somewhere in between.
I saw plenty of leaves on the witness protection program trails. Nice shots and beautiful model.

2. Up highway 9 at 20mph. Btw. Highway 9 is wide open now with no road construction stoplight.

In an evergreen forest we don't get spectacular displays of colored foliage, so a "fall" photo is more about the low light and the green shoots breaking through the summer's thatch.
Lake Lagunitas, yesterday.
It don't mean a feng if it ain't got that

Squashyo, this indian summer is thwarting our fall photo contest. The leaves won't turn! Maybe next week...
Hey norton, nice pics - I think your coyote's ears look a lot like a bobcat, though! Did you see more of it?

Reason: Moving to the correct thread...
Never use your face as a brake pad.
I was last in the conga' line when my buddy stopped and told me he almost hit it. Every time I had him/her in focus, it would move. You don't normally see them in the afternoon.
