Ribblesdale Viaduct - Canon 5D2

On August Bank Holiday Monday my friend Simon and me took our motorcycles for a spin around the Lake District.
The original plan had been to end the trip at sunset at Ribblesdale Viaduct for some photos.
I had my Canon 5D2 with 24-70mm and he had his recently acquired Leica S2 with 30mm and 90mm primes. He also had a Rolleiflex TLR.

The weather was perfect, for motorcycling, warm, clear and bright. Unfortunately though this meant that for photography the light was too harsh and with no cloud the skies were rather flat. In fact photos were so lacking in colour that they looked like monochrome.

With some processing in Ps, Lr and Nix suite I managed to get three images which are OK(ish)
