Dishwasher fail on T-Day. 5 hours of plumbing groping and...it works! Filter plugged by a small piece of plastic (off milk jug) and 10 years of gunk.

Nice pic! I like to mess with editing programs and saturating the colors thru layers. I use the free program GIMP to edit. Free cool program much like photoshop.

Hope you don't mind!

Cool. I haven't played with the photos like that in a long time. I have an older version of Paint Shop Pro. My workflow is mainly crop, sharpen if needed. Adjust the histogram if needed.

My computer is wimpy so I shoot jpeg rather than raw. So the camera already does some color adjustments in the output. But sometimes it is fun just to play with a pic to see what comes out.

Exactly! I had to get a new computer to accommodate the programs I wanted to use. I bought the stand alone version of Light room so I could shoot raw. Honestly I don't see much difference in shooting raw for most pics. I use a free program called GIMP that I got of the net for free. Much like photoshop but free! That is what I used to saturate your train pic.

I see a bigger difference in my images shooting full manual over auto than I do shooting in raw vs jpeg. If it's a detailed landscape pic, then maybe raw is better. But once I edit the pics, I don't one person has ever been able to tell the difference between raw and jpeg, including me!

I just like playing with the camera on full manual trying to capture images I cannot with full auto. These were taken raw so I do see a difference had I taken them in jpeg. But I am just a guy messing with a camera and not a photographer. A real photographer may be able to see the difference but I can't.

These were at night in Laughlin, set at about 3 or 4 seconds shutter speed.

My brother and I rode Skyline Drive plus the BRP North to South in May 2015. My wonderful wife provided support. GREAT week long ride. We had perfect weather all week. It was very close to 600 miles and 60,000' of climbing. Heck, Skyline Drive was 115 miles hotel to hotel with 10,000'+ climbing......that was day one and was really tough but got us off to a terrific start.

That's great, and a great photo. It took you 7 days?

I've done the section past Grandfather Mountain, the viaduct and down into Blowing Rock. I was going to ride from the US Capital to my home in suburban Atlanta back in 2005 but life got in the way.

User @merlinextraligh did it August 2017. https://www.bikeforums.net/touring/1...ve-thread.html

7 days is correct. I had ridden most of the Parkway doing various rides over the years but not end to end. We stayed at my daughters house in Boone on the next to last night and then my wife’s sisters house in Asheville the last night. The sights on that section of the last day are outstanding. We also discovered a small town in Va called Floyd. Fun place!

Nice beautiful day and ride with the wife. She did very well, a 16.4 average speed over 32 miles on a breezy day. Not bad for a 56 year old chick!

Here's a few more from the Parkway yesterday; however, I will confess non-cycling content; wife and I hiked up there; we did see fat tire tracks: (PS that picture of you daughter is great)
