    awesome shot, love the snow cloud surrounding him. Looks like it was a difficult shot 2 get as well…nicely done

  • Hi S Tang
    I have to agree its not an easy shot to make. It involves a lot of hiking in the back country between 2500 to 3600m that’s hard enough boarding with camera gear in your back pack. To get this shot i am well over the lip so i don’t see the rider. I just get a call from him “Dropping in” then it’s counting the seconds until i think he will make the jump. Sometimes its a hit or miss affair, but well worth it when it comes together. I wish we had a chopper but that would take the fun out of exploring lol
    Best Regards
