pics 2 and 3, that is a really steep mountain! Like 90deg slope, and even the trees have to grow sideways!

I'm not sure what-all the circumstances were, but it looks like fun!

I am an iPhone user and, evidently, iOS and the software behind this forum disagree on photo orientation. I gave up after a while.

You'd think that technology would have made that particular problem easier to deal with by now.

I'd be really surprised if there aren't a handful of free apps that exist solely for the purpose of being image viewers that are able to very conveniently persist simple edits like 90deg rotations and crops.

@davei1980, I used to have that trouble here. I don't know why I don't anymore. My solution at the time was to rotate the picture in Mac Preview and save it again. Never mind that the final orientation was the same as the original one, because it fixed the problem.

The circumstances were fun and relaxation!

Getting together with an old friend, we both have only one bike, both set up as commuters. Mine's a CX frame with cross tires, his is a hybrid with a suspension fork. Fun was had although Matt did endo after hitting a rut (he landed on his feet, so wish I was rolling a Go Pro!)

The important thing with iPhone photos is to make sure the little camera icon is pointing up. If you had the phone angled and straighten it, or vice versa, and the camera icon appears to be on its side relative to your subject, the photo will come out sideways.
