Scott Genius

Scott Genius
One of the regulars at Malmens konditori is Rolf von Steinhausen who lives just across the road from said cafe. He is a real tough guy, in his early sixties now. Used to drive motorcycles for a few decades. Also a keen mountain bike cyclist who have competed,(and won), in world championships. Had an accident a couple of years ago. Injured himself real badly. Took some time for the doctors to figure everything out. Last year he got a brand new knee. It was a painful affair, despise the drugs and we heard all about it. But now he is back in the game again. This is his latest bike, a Scott Genius. Rolf loves to climb steep hills, and he was out on a few tough rides last week when the weather was great, today it snowed this morning. I shot this as a bokeh panorama so it is eight photos stitched together. Shot with the full frame canon using the nifty fifty lens.

Hope he stays safe.

Tekniskt är det verkligen en bild som är "spot on". Bra. Och cykeln är ju grym, det kan jag inte förneka. Bäst är ändå historien om dess ägare, ett öde som trots allt verkar ha en positiv utgång.
