Norton Summit

 

I was recovering from a head cold and decided that I would go for an easy ride up to Norton Summit on this morning. I took my Canon 5D Mk III DSLR and a 24-105mm f4:0 L IS lens. The idea was to stop a few times along the way to shoot some images of the riders coming up and going down. I discovered two things on this ride that you don't notice when pedaling non stop to the top. The first is that there is a hell of a lot of people who ride up to Norton Summit on a Sunday morning. The second is that I knew way more people than I realised. It became a very social morning. I got way more images than I thought I would so I decided to make this dedicated slideshow. I will gradually add the images as I get them processed. I have around 100 images worth processing so they will all go up here in the next week or so. Just a thought, given how many riders pedal up the hill every Sunday morning someone should set a coffee cart up at the top of Norton Summit. I reckon they would make a motza :-)
