Taken on a cold winter’s morning on my way to work. The sun was rising right over the track with a mist just lifting. The guy on the cycle was a stroke as luck. I took four or five shots and didn’t notice him until I checked them over later. He only appeared in the one, which fortunately for me was the sharpest of the batch.
