I usually use a Nikon D70 but have recently bought a Canon A620 to carry around on my bike. While not as versatile as a SLR, I am amazed at the quality this little pocket camera is able to produce. Here is one from a recent ride around the neighborhood.

I have. This was taken last winter on another bike ridewith my Nikon CoolPix 995. That was the day I started the search for a smaller, more up to date camera. The Canon A620 was what I decided to buy and I really like it.



This shot was taken on a hazy afternoonin 2004 with my D70.



These are all taken from the south. I don't have any of the other side... where all the action is.

Thanks for showing me those. I think you are lucky to be so near such a beautiful and famous landmark, yet far from most of the tourism. I may visit the mountain one day.

I bet the A620 is great to carry on the bike. Irode quite a bit a few years back and really miss it now.. Really nice set of shots with both cameras..

I agree with squirl about the framing. You placed the bike in an interesting angle adding a lot of interest to the image!
