 I raced that day with Nate. Ian took some sick pics that day. raybao is right though, this trail cannot be comprehended through a lens, you just need to ride/ hike it. Gnar-gnar with some extra gnar on top.

 aw you were there sick

 how did you place
  • 0 0
 5th out of 5! haha. But consider that it was my 3rd time down the trail on my 02 stinky with a 66 fork and I was the only racer running a single crown. But the race is part of a local series that I am trying to do well in so 5th place points was all I was looking for. I'm 3rd overall so far.

 Why is everybody saying this is such a good POD!? I like the clouds but deffo not POD worthy. There are much better pics out there!

 Motherf*ckin' Nate!!

99% of the people who see this [will never] have any clue how steep/tech/gnar this trail is.........

 you, sir, are correct

 The sky came out of camera dark. I underexposed 1 stop and wanted flash to fill rider. The flash didn't fire so I had to expose rider with RAW file and then I just left the sky underexposed in this version. The original I posted was equally exposed through the whole image. Blending mode and layers. Nothing too complex in PS!

 Sweet shot none-the-less. Sweet frame- and epic timing.

 I was out there shooting pictures that day too, unfortunately my D60 doesn't produce anything like this. All the people who are giving this picture crap probably aren't even capable of riding the trail that this was taken on. its crazy. If you want to see a movie that doesn't really do justice to it watch the first scene of chain smoke two with Richard Landcaster.
  • 1 0
 Bollucks, your D60 is perfectly capable of producing an image... composition is all about you. But finding good angles on this trail is a royal pain in the ass

  • 6 2
 That was with a 1d Mark IIn. They are a screamin deal now. I have seen the older version called a 1D Mark II selling for $900-$1200.



just starting get a 30 or 40D they are good and easy to use.
