petit train du nord
Bikes along the "petit train du nord" bike path which goes from St Jerome on towards Mont Laurier on route # 2 of the provincial network which is formally named the "Route verte". The bike path gives the occasion to contemplate pleasent scenery typical of the laurentian mountains which despite being the world's oldest (at over 3 billion years old ) still do offer some sensational sights. Furthermore there are many pleasent towns to discover along the way which each hold some special appeal typical of the region and its past.

At this particular point a stream at trailside culminates with a waterfall and pleasent scenery. Although a certain measure of caution is adviseable in a slippery rocky environement in the vicinity of the turbulent waters. A look at my WEB site gives further precisions on the immediate area.

The original autumn image is nowhere to be found on my computer.... Can't use what isn't mine anymore...So much time and effort lost ... Sorry...Actually I wanted to repost the original after trying out a more recent fuzzy image. Unfortunately after searching in the relevent folder the relevent file was gone ! Plase excuse me....I did replace the original with an image taken at the same moment but without the bikes...

The point to remember is that by taking a picture of cyclists on a trail people realise that this is no jive ! After all what else proves that this is a bike path ? (O.K. I forgot the bikes parked for the rapids below !See relevent images)

Mind you , for this image I would have preferred taking a good panorama of the surrounding hilltops some hills showing relatively dramatic rockfaces which are a delight to climb for cliff hangers ! The only problem is that I suffer from vertigo...

Most of the images can be zoomed once pressing on them...

I once had the privilege to see the Autumn colours of New England.

"Vertigo" maybe it's the bike's high centre of gravity you mentioned!

I earlier on mentioned something somewhere with regards to the high center of gravity I do have with the relatively heavy luggage strapped atop the rack below the seat...Although I never suffered any adverse consequence using the industrial strength all rubber straps...

As for the autumn colours with the image; they never seem to stand out properly. I thus try improving the colours with some image editing software but forget to put in the proper contrasts...With time I'll get the knack of things ...Basically it's not just a question of improving the prominence and constrast with some of the base colours but also of improving gamma such as with the red and blue...Furthermore good refinement also implies a sharper image which toned down relief (slight embossement) and sharpening accomplish... Mind you, as often remarked while viewing such images, either there is overemphasis of certain colours (such as green) or they are skewed (such as with blue)...Furthermore the contrasts don't stand out properly...
