Rusty Old Bicycle

While travelling through Glen Etive, in the Scottish Highlands, during a field photography trip, in autumn 2010, we came across this old rusty bicycle, leaning against an old locked shed. (probably set up for us “budding photographers”)

Apart from the quaint appearance of the rusty old fashioned bicycle, the “bleached” wood on the shed had the appearance of having been neglected for many years. It did however have some very interesting textures that I have tried to bring this out in this image.

I hope you like it.

    • Many thanks Joanna. I do think you can almost “feel” the age of the bike and the old shed.

  3. Fantastic photo! Lots of textures in this image! The grasses, the rust on the bike, the shed….very cool! I love old bikes in photos….this is a great find! The shed with the old lock is wonderful, and the wood makes a great backdrop for the bike.
