As September comes, and daylight saving starts again in October, may ride is in the harsh daylight. There is little left of the soft morning light by the time I am on the road. In the afternoon, on my way home, sunblock is more important than spare batteries for my lights.
While many photographers shy away from this harsh light, it does still bring opportunities, especially for infra-red photography. Even though the heat of the day hasn’t eased, the evening does still bring some opportunities for some saturated vistas.
