    Bwahahaha!

    Looks like a good day's fun. It's amazing how much fun one can have on a drop off and how much you can learn going over/down it a few times. Sadly I was reduced to a blacktop run today :¬(

    Lol that guy is me! ha ha!!

    Managed to land it.... but - it was a little scewed - still held it together...!!
    Think the look of "OMG I'm drifting off the track - was captured quite well there!

    Suffered 3 punctures between 2 of us after hitting a couple of drop offs further down the track....

    Between that and a couple of the usual little off's here and there it was a cracking run!

    ...Call that a drop off? you great nancy boy. Your pics are crap btw.

    sorry, was just filling in for absent .... erm friends :wink: :oops:

    looks like fun. Getting a decent clowdy sky behind the shot helps keep the whole thing interesting aswell. Nothing like 50% of your shot being the same shade of english grey to make a shot boring, no matter the foreground. Getting the exposure right is tough in those conditions though, if you can, try a bit of fill flash next time or meter before the shot for the foreground. The sky will white out more but the expressions will come through better. Use enough flash and you'll put the jumper off then you'll get a good crash sequence!

    Beer in moderation ... is a waste of beer

    If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,
    then riding a rigid singlespeed is like licking it
    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day
