Seb takes a walk in the woods with Sterling who takes us back to his beginnings as a photographer. Matt follows with his Canon. Magic is captured.

A very well put together reminder as to where it started.

I had the chance to ride "Reaper" one week before the "chainsaw massacre". It was art, albeit extremely challenging and high exposure art.

Third to last pic is one of the most memorable pics I've seen from the Shore and an absolute fav.

Thank you sterling for putting out awesome images that inspire us tot get out there. Your shot of me on the Original Sin hip that was used in advertising and the WB park trail map back in 2004 was a real treat for me as I never though I would ever see myself in print. Thx again. I still have that email saved.

The pic with the bridges linking up the large, mossy boulders….Is that actually on the Shore? I thought it was on the Island.

somewhere on Cypress I believe.

Sterl's use of light is the best in the industry imo.

Is this the Sterling for which there is a trail on Cypress which remains unmapped and won't actually ever be mentioned again on the Interweb. Not that I'd ever be able to find it again, but it's one of those trails that baffles me how you can travel so far into what seems like the middle of nowhere and then suddenly there's a random structure. Loved the trail, but I would never try navigating it on my own. And of course it doesn't actually exist, so I'll speak of it no more.

I know you are in being tongue in cheek, but there is actually no trail with Sterling's name on it. And the trail you are actually talking about (which has a name) is sadly long gone as well because of development.

Cam, i can guarantee there is no development on the trail which I rode, which our tour guide referred to as Sterling. It included some old growth at the beginning which gave me a real appreciation for what the Shore would be like if it wasn't all second growth. 'nuff said.
