 You should build a little roller on that rock. That would be pretty beast.

Fisheye?

 I think it is fisheye, looks a bit distorted
  • 26 4
 its not fisheye...both sides would be curved, and thats just the way the tree grew out of that big ass rock!! im pretty sure its a wide angle lens...just not a legit fisheye lens

 That rock is very natural looking and defiantly give a lot of sophistication to this pic, i really find it intriguing

 no fish eye was used, just the tree and the rock curve the same so it looks like it.

 No fisheye, 18mm lens on a 1.6x crop body = about 29mm on 35mm FF

So it's just a decently wide angle lens.
  • 3 0
 I suspect that the righthand side of the pic has been cropped off a little to improve the composition. That may explain why the tree on the left is a little bent and the right hand side looks straighter. But whatever, I wish I had taken the picture! I certainly don't have the balls to ride it.

 Thousands of years from now our descendants will find this rock buried, and wonder at the hieroglyphic that is panted so vividly on it! They will stare at astonishment at the contraption that the rider is on, wondering what it is that replaced the horse in the other rock paintings that were found by us!! HaHaha, great pic!!

 There's a photo of Wade Simmons hitting this drop from another angle in the Aug 2010 issue of Bike magazine I think. The caption in that photo explains what it's like to negotiate it.

 I cant believe that this cliff face has gotten so much attention, drop looks super sick, would love to hit it. As far as this cliff its likely a diatomaceous limestone deposited during the last epiric sea. the more you know...
