After a great time with the good people of Skei i Jølster, the #OlympusBackRoads project headed for Bergen. Basically not a very long ride, with only one ferry. I asked Serena the GPS robot-woman for a more interesting route, and it immediately started to rain. Motorcycle helmets don’t have visor-wipers, so staying on the road takes priority over looking for photos. Hence, I almost missed the horses. Unfortunately, I spotted them just as I rode past, managed to turn around and stop the Kawasaki in a decent position.
Cameras don’t have viewfinder-wipers, so by the time I was half-ready, the horses ran away. I’m hoping the resulting blurry photo I grabbed will be accepted as arty, for lack of a better version. Which could have been the end of this story. But whilst I may be slow, I’m also stubborn. So I sat there for the better part of an hour, in the rain, on a motorcycle, waiting for the horses to come running back in a spectacular manner. Tractors drive by. Farmers stare at me. Then the horses come back. Walking. Slowly.
