Crash during Panda Portrait attempt

I was reaching down for my camera to take a Panda Portrait (a self portrait while cycling) when I hit a deep sand trap and bit the dust. Literally: I had a mouth full of fine sand after this crash.

 

Unmaintained portion of Conference Road in Santa Cruz County between Felton and Scotts Valley.
