  • The final goodbye.
  • VIDEO:  Windswept sunset - 270815... with yours truly making a very brief cameo appearance. :-) Will post a couple of pics shortly. :-) #sunset #dusk #timelapse #ballarat #theballaratlife #stravacycling #stravavideo #stravavideos #nature #sky #skyporn #beauty #weather #instagrammers #igers #thevividworld #naturelovers #landscape #clouds #igphotoworld
  • VIDEO - Just testing out Instagram's new (finally!!!) landscape option.  The vid is the original version of "Windswept Sunset", which I posted earlier... but without the zoom effect.  The natural panning motion is simply my bike slowly falling over as it was on a bit of a down slope.  Thankfully I caught her before she toppled! :-)
  • Sun setting over Lake Wendouree, 23/8/15.
  • VIDEO: Pretty cool cloud formations sweeping across the sky as the sun sets. :-) Have uploaded a 30 sec version of this to YouTube, which looks a little better than this. Same footage, just slowed down by half.  If u can't see the link for my YouTube channel in my Instagram profile, just go to YouTube and do a search for Steve Cycling. :-) #sunset #dusk #timelapse #cycling #strava #stravacycling #stravavideo #stravavideos #cyclingvideo #cyclingvideos #cyclingvid #cyclingvids #lakewendouree #ballarat #theballaratlife
  • Just having a play with some different effects on this one. ☺
  • Ever wondered how many of those super cool, panning timelapse videos are done?? Yeah, thought not.  But I'll tell u anyway.  They're made using the old camera mounted on a cooking timer trick! :-) Hat-tip to whoever it was on YouTube that first showed me that technique.  Mind u, using the suction mount to connect the camera to the timer was my idea... which I'm most proud of.  Doesn't happen all that often! ;-)

  • Apologies in advance for all the lake pics. Just shots taken during the week and now's the first chance I've had to upload them.
  • Accidentally left my main camera at home so grabbed the Toshiba Camileo X-sports cam off the handlebars and took a few snaps. Must admit, doesn't take too bad a pic!  Each of the following pics is unfiltered.
  • VIDEO - "Waking Up... to tranquility." - Latest in my "Waking Up.." series on YouTube.. and my first ever attempt at a mechanical "panning" timelapse vid. 
Full version (in real-time, not timelapsed) at -
  • "Black Swan at Dusk."... with obvious apologies to my good friend, @gerard_cogger, aka "The Mailman". ;-)
  • The lake truly is a wonderful place to be at dawn. :-)
