A hearty congratulations to Ductape, a win at last! and a great one/won at that ;)

so June - nothing so much to link to the time of year or to the weather, more to do with the sense of camaraderie and fellowship these old pipes of metal and round bits of rubber inspire...this month's theme is

Belonging

good luck gents, the usual rules apply. The entries will remain open until the evening of the 23rd of June at which point I will put them all up to the vote.

Any questions, just ask...get snapping!

I was out on a ride tonight on my Kilauea and I stopped where the bridleway I was taking started - also where the Pennine way crosses the road. I took a few pics of my bike against the signpost and wasn't happy with them as you tend to get a lot of pics like that. Then I took a panoramic shot and the light that was captured looked amazing. I was going to crop my shadow out but when I got back home and looked at the POTM theme I thought the picture was great as it was - no editing or photoshop (wouldn't know how to use that program anyway!).

If you know the story of this bike (see link in sig if you don't) then you'll know that I am over the moon that it belongs to me again, hence why I left me in the same shot as the bike. You think when you ride a bike again after so many years it'll be a bad experience, not as good as you hoped - but this is the opposite.

It really belongs to me again................
