Wanted to do an abstract with my DSLR for a while, this challenge was good excuse! Removed windshield from my ZX-14 and mounted camera on RAM mount. Kind of shaky, but that adds to the excitement of the shot. Set exposure and focus on the fisheye to manual, shooting high speed continuous using cable release locked on. Tried exposures from 1/2 to 2 seconds on various runs. It had just rained, that gave the recently paved road a wonderful dark sheen.
