Ive just recently posted a couple of shots with my camera on a tripod which was mounted to the bicycle. I got some interesting shots with the bike and myself clear and sharp as the world was whizzing by. Now this added element of riding through water is another aspect I never thought of. Now I have to try it. As a matter of fact its raining like hell out right now so as soon as it stops Im sure there will be enough water somewhere to come up with something. Thanks rean.

Musket, not so much a brave man, but a wet muddy one. I replaced my car with a bicycle and know all about it. Mudguards are an option these days. I hear next year they are making the seat an option. Seeing the water splash reminds me of my water drop pics.

The reason for mudguards is to keep the bloody stuff from flying up on your front and up your back like a skunks stripe. Such a practical thing on a bike they should be standard but were removed as a cost saving reason. They have always been available but as an additional expense to buy as an option from any bike shop. They come in all shapes and sizes and materials, from plastic to aluminum. Raleigh, CCM and all top bike makers have them for sale. Looks like good ones you show musket.
