Picture of the Month - August 2012
Sep 6, 2012
Picture of the Month is an article showcasing the best Pictures of the Day from the month before. We take the most viewed photos from the previous month, and pick our favorites out of the top 10.
This month seems to feature Crankworx fairly heavily, in fact the first three photos are all from there. The one that really stands out though is number 2, and not because it's a great photo. It's an incredibly inspirational photo of Adolfo Almarza, a double amputee, racing in the Garbo DH race at Whistler. I originally almost left this image out, because as images go it's just not that exciting, and it's not a beautifully lit, well composed image. But I changed my mind because it has something else that is more important. Fraser's caption says it all 'What was your excuse again?"
