Cycle: Port Stanley to the Southwold Earthworks

One of the goals for the summer was for my son-in-law Konrad and I to go for a long cycle. In late August we finally got the opportunity and decided to cycle out to the Southwold Earthworks. The Earthworks are the remains of a pre-historic fortified village that once stood from 1500 to 1650 AD. It is a nice 35 km round trip from Port Stanley. 

We had great weather for the ride.  Sharing the GoPro between us, I made the following movie of our ride and visit:

You may have noticed a number of cyclists in the video heading the opposite way: it was also the day of the 3 Port Cycling Tour, a one-day century ride that starts and finishes in Aylmer and visits Port Stanley, Port Bruce and Port Burwell. Konrad and I may look to do this ride in 2018.

The settings I used to record the video were:

Camera: GoPro Hero 5 Black on a GoPro Karma Grip mounted on a GoPro Chesty
Mode: Video; 2.7 K, Wide, 30 fps
Color: GoPro Color
ISO Min: 400
ISO Max: 400
EV Comp: 0
Sharpness: Low

I also took the lead photograph with the GoPro.  I imported it into Lightroom, tweaked the colour and removed the fisheye. The GoPro setting were:

Camera: GoPro Hero 5 Black
Mode: Photo, Wide, 12MP (RAW format)
Exposure: 1/2400 sec at f2.8
ISO: 100
EV Comp: 0
Sharpness: Low
