Hi, I'm Rick also known as Mr. C. I used to shoot with a Canon SLR, but that was a long while back. I got a new camera, an Olympus SP-510UZ on 11/06/06. I've added a Nikon D90 with a 55-200 lens to my camera bag in 2010. I'll get a camphone if Almont ever enters the 21st century.

I'm now shooting with a brand new Nikon D90 with a 55-200mm VR lens.

Crunching gravel from New Salem to Almont on a rainy day, I found the road to a hill I've trying to find.

the top one just invites walking, actually running, actually rolling down hill on soapbox runner

Thanks, Taniwha. A soapbox runner on this road would be a wild ride!

I was thinking it would be great for tearing along on a BMX, mountain bike, or maybe a motocross bike.

And the place in this shot is such a different place from where I am now.... yet I actually wished I am there, immerse in such vast and free landscape... I cant even remember when's the last time I ever seen such far horizon!

The dirt road smells great on light rain day. This series stimulates the senses.

Hi, 540. Yeah those kind of bikes do well here. Most people choose the motocross 250cc bikes.
Thanks, Kevzz. This is a wide open land. Very different from where you're at!
Yes, Midlife, it does smell wonderful. The hay and flowers just infuse the air with a green, refreshing scent!

It's amazing to see the lie of the land where you are. Is the conical hill natural?

Rick says:

Yep, Euphro, it is natural. Almont is only 100 miles from the Badlands of the Dakotas, and there are little hills like this randomly scattered about that are made of the same clay. This is one of them.
