Early Morning Riders

Early Morning Riders

In the hot weather, everyone tries to get their exercise early before it get's to hot to move.
Here some eager cyclists labour up Highgate Hill into the rising sun.
It's just after 5.30am. I am struggling up the hill behind them.
5.30am is not at time to be alone. The streets are alive with walkers, joggers and cyclists of all ages!

Canon PowerShot G9
1/400s f/8.0 at 36.8mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

lovely scene and lighting as well as composition

Almost silhouetted foreground with riders emerging into the light and toward the bright white horizon gives the impression of proceeding into an inferno. Powerful imagery! V

I thought I got out early! I hope that's not a false summit - certainly a unique POV.
