I had already started to frame up the way the twist in the path ahead of me combined with the greenery and sky to give a sense of a view that someone had reached out into, pinched between two fingers and twisted slightly in a clockwise direction when I heard the cyclist approaching behind me. I noted the diagonals of the power cables against the sky adding further to the sense that the view was directing itself towards the upper right third of the picture. Then the man on the bike zoomed past me and leaned out prior to following the loop of the road to the right. I released the shutter (or whatever it is you do with a digital camera). I like this picture very much, both in its black and white version, used here, and in colour.
