 Talk us through the flash locations please :-) One is camera left... pretty high power? The other is high and to the right, but slightly in front of the rider? Brilliant shot all round!
  • + 9
 Thanks man! Yeah you're pretty much spot on, can't remember the exact power output of the flashes but they were both pretty high power.

 This was a guaranteed winner from the start. It idealizes everything one looks for in a mountain ride. No people, sick air, good bikes, and a foggy forest— similar to the haze your mind disappears into when you ride, always making you want more!

 What's so brilliant about this photo is that is captures that moment between being completely out of control and pulling off something insane, and all on wet, tricky terrain. I've had to look at this photo a lot (every time I've voted for it) and it never grows old

 How do you mean buddy? Toby isn't paid to take photos and I'm not sponsored/hooked up in any way.

 It's that talent thing people keep forgetting about.

 I meant nothing bad. Its just every shot is near perfect. Older pods you could tell the riders were hucking it hoping for the best.
