When It’s to Wet to Ride Bikes we Draw Bikes

Old Train Bridge

While waiting for this time-lapse I kept myself busy under seemingly still skies. Watching it after the fact was mesmerizing¬†to see the turmoil that was actually happening above me. (Sorry about the big file, I didn’t have the heart to make it shorter)
