2005-08-24 - BIG Air

This is probably my favourite shot from the Big Air competition. The boarder's "pose" could probably be a bit better but I was happy to just catch all the elements like this in the shot. This is uncropped with just the usual editing tweaks. I was lying directly under the jump to capture this shot - great fun but also an interesting challenge since I could not see or hear when a competitor was coming so it was all down to quick reactions as soon as I saw the movement.

While I was taking this set of photographs, I met up-and-coming NZ photographer Tim Pierce - he's got some great stuff so be sure to check his site out :-)
