La chaussée scintille

No, the street wasn't wet, not at all. And yet there are lots of little shiny particles on the surface, like mica! By the time VDP was ready to take the pic, the cyclist was almost out of the frame...

Non elle n'était pas mouillée, pas du tout, mais pleine de petites particules telles du mica ! VDP n'a pas été assez rapide, le temps de faire le réglage et le cycliste était presque sorti du champ...

A magical image opens up when you press the facebook thumbnail Ciel, was this early morning sunshine scattering the road with diamond like jewels!

It does make for a strangely wondrous image, Ciel!

No question. It's star dust.

And what a great composition... well timed !

Cyclists can be so unthinking!!

Lovely sparkles. I guess the cyclist didn't enjoy them as much as you did.

Amazing how you caught the twinkle of the little stars. So what are they, do you think? I was going to say you could have chased the cyclist but that's probably not true at the moment. :) Hope you recovering well!
