 Awesome riding with a simplisticly intricate backdrop that contrasts widely from the majority of mtb photos, and one that reminds us of the human aspect of our riding by being set apart from the paradisical view we often see and bringing us back into the realms of reality, while still maintaining that spirit, that passion that we would all still feel riding in such a way, wherever we were. Love it!

 The ideal of modern architecture being an articulated mechanical adequacy that not only frees human phenomena from robotism of inevitable survival functions; but also, and moreover, tends towards progressive material unselfconsciousness of control, of such adequate mechanics of universal life intercourse, as to bring into high relief the residuary "mental", or "time", awareness of only the eternally and ex-static.

 Yea as @johnt1788 and @mattwragg said. It is the background that completes the shot. Normally you want to eliminate background noise but this shot would feel empty without it.

Beautifully done @mslager

 Hey congrats on the POD man! It is very much deserved. I ran into the couple who's wedding you photographed in Copper Harbor at the Mega Cavern in Louisville over spring break. They were very cool and the guy's hand built fat bike was on point.

 Thanks! Oh cool. I wanted to go down there that weekend too, but didn't make it. How did you like the mega cavern?

 I thought it was sweet. It's not as good as Ray's at cramming in lines and having sections that keep flowing indefinitely, but it's amazing what they have already and has way more and better jumps and a lot more variety of XC riding. My wrists got beat up riding a rigid dirt jumper though. Today's VOD represents it reasonably well.
