    Ordinarily the roads over the nearby Cascades are covered with snow and ice this time of year. But yesterday the temps were in the 50s (°F) and the lack of any recent precipitation meant that I could get out for an all-too-rare January ride. So of course I brought along the A7, and somewhat irrationally decided to limit myself to the SEL70200G. These are all scenes that I've shot before with other lenses. But what the heck? I got in a 220-mile ride! In January! It's not the time to be thinking rationally. :D
