Dylan's sillouette cruising up in the fog high above the forest floor.
Trail building is a crucial, necessary part of our sport, and for me something I've always enjoyed doing. Almost as much as riding my bike or shooting photos.
I didn't put in nearly the amount of time that Dylan did on this trail, but I was fortunate enough to give him a hand on many occasions, including erecting this elevated wall-ride.
Nothing is more rewarding than riding a trail that you have poured all your blood, sweat, & tears into for the first time. While I may not possess the skills or balls big enough to ride this trail. Being able to capture images like this of a rider enjoying something they worked so hard to create is enough of a reward for me.
Selected by Scott Secco - Dylan Sheffer's freeride stunts are some of the most visually stunning creations we've seen since the New World Disorder days. I think that black and white processing is an aesthetic which can be mis-used at times, but Bryce has executed it perfectly here to emphasize the fog and Sheffer's silhouette. This feels like a classic North Shore image and it's one of my favourite shots of the season.
