A Linden Tree and a Link

We saw this giant linden tree when passing through Iffeldorf on a day outing. It seems to be competing with the church steeple. When in blossom these trees can be almost overwhelmingly pungent.

And now for the link – FIRST DAY OF OUR BICYCLE TOUR is now up, including a video. But not by me. Following the example of the Andersons, one of us writes and the other films. While I found that the GoPro on my handlebars was a nuisance, Janos was having great success using his DJI Osmo Pocket. It’s very compact and what I like best is that it is stabilized and the videos are really smooth. Have a look!

Here we are – and if you look closely you can see the Osmo on Janos’s handlebars

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. I have three kids and eight grandchildren - so I'm pretty old. Cycling, photography and walking are my favorite things.

    What a lovely ride!! Love all the ‘tunnels made of trees’ and that narrow bridge looked interesting! Have fun….

      I think lime and linden are different designations for the same tree, and probably there are different species, too – the tilia americana and the tilia cordata etc. as I read in internet.

    Great video!! Thanks!!
    What a nice ride and beautiful scenery.
    You can really see that assist kick in when you started across the bridge — very cool!

    Janos did a great job on the Video and I have the great honour of being his first YouTube subscriber. Germany is cycling heaven.

        Janos could go ‘viral’ on YouTube. If you could take a cute kitten along for the ride it would be guaranteed.

    The Osmo works well – stabilisation very good. Now I will go and Google it!! Transferring vids to YouTube I have the same trouble with loss of quality. Yours is interesting as it flicks in and out of clarity and pixelly.

    Day One was a good ride. Lots of variety and those tricky bridges to wake you up. Should be a great tour.

      I’m not sure why the clarity and focus varies – it seems when he goes from shade to light …???
