Summer easy

Rolf von Steinhausen
Great downhill cyclist and motorcycle fanatic Rolf von Steinhausen occupying one of the piers at the Lower lake at the Rudan nature reserve. We are expecting a few fine Summer days now. Rolf had an accident last year which resulted in a nasty injury, followed by surgery so he had to give up motorcycle racing but he can still be seen out on the roads riding his bicycles. After I shot this candid snap of him I walked out onto the pier for a chat. The piers at this lake were constructed (in first hand), for anglers and there can sometimes be discussions about who has the right to be there, but I think Rolf made it very clear that it was his pier on this occasion!Rolf lives just across the road from my favorite cafe Malmens konditori where he is a regular guest.

He's found a perfect spot to catch the sun's warmth and relax for a while. I see a couple of ducks off to the right of the pier paying their respects.

No better way to stretch out and relax on a lovely summer day.

Makes sense to me that he wants to soak up all the light the sun is offering. Glad to hear his shoulder is healing.
Love this photo, Stefan. Everything seems to be all right with the world...
Thanks!

Met Roffe at the cafe this afternoon. He was thinking about arranging a 24 hour mountain bike race at the lakes.
