We shot this picture on our trip to Utah for Red Bull and a German TV show " Wild Ones - Junge Helden". Due to the strict time schedule we had only three hours to build this hip in the afternoon and three hours to shoot the picture in the sunrise the next morning. But the sweat and tears were definitely worth it. It was a special experience for us to take the first freeride shot in Monument Valley. :-)

 I probably don't know what I'm talking about, but the depth of field, as I understand it, is incredible in this shot between foreground, mid ground, and background! Nice shot!!!

 Curious how rigourius the permitting process was to make this shoot happen. Monument Valley isn't a place you can ride bikes off trail, and definitely not one that you can just go dig you own lines and jumps in. Assuming they went through the proper channels this is a rad shot, but if its poaching a very illegal spot not so much.

 not really, it was more pain. Peters last jump was a big crash into the stones, luckily he walked away.
