That first image is beautiful! I like the MTB-ing captures too. As a fellow MTB-er, I'd like to offer some advice and PSA regarding MTB-ing in open-toed footwear. There is a risk of mutilating your toes should they get caught between chain and chainring. The lack of chain guards on high performance bicycles, and the unpredictable surfaces of off-roading, an accident can lead to a permanently scarring or handicapping injury. It's best to always wear closed-toe shoes, ie. sneakers, cycling shoes, etc.
Stay safe!

Absolutely. We weren't out to go biking this time. Berry picking, actually. Turns out there was this little pump track right there next to the berry farm, and my bike was on the roof, so we took a few (slow) laps for fun... We don't trail ride in sandals, for sure. A useful PSA, thanks!

One of my favorite shots as the hummingbird closed its eyes.

A little rocket science, followed by sunset views from a mountaintop. Another fine day, Vermont-ing.

That is a fun hobby and I remember doing that when I was young. The only time I would get mad is when shooting in an wide open field and having the rocket drift far enough away where it would land in a tree. :)
