Description:

This was a very last minute shot. I was notified of the month win last Friday and thought for sure I'd have at least
2 weeks to shoot a photo for the final. Turns out I had 5 days. I made the best of what time I had left and sought out Kamloops BC to be my final photo destination, but turns out Kamloops
wasn't very nice to Danny and I with only 2 days left. With only minutes until the deadline I decided to shoot in my backyard, the North Shore, and try and capture the esssence of the "Shore" feel, very wet and dark, but also trying to capture the "freeride" aspect of mountain biking, which the Shore sometimes tends to lack, with the stunts mostly on the Shore being smaller but very technical.
So I incorporated both into my final image hoping it would bring out a different type of Shore. I used my canon 30D, along with 2 vivitar 285's with Pocket Wizards,
and a 70-200 F4 Canon lens.
Thanks and good luck to the rest of the guys!

read what he wrote, he didnt claim its the essance of the shore

"North Shore, and try and capture the esssence of the Shore feel, very wet and dark, but also trying to capture the freeride aspect of mountain biking, which the Shore sometimes tends to lack, with the stunts mostly on the Shore being smaller but very technical"

he claimed the situation with it being dark and wet, not classic shore or something else..

> wut trail is that drop on?

It's not a trail, just a single stunt on the Eastern side of Seymour. Someone finished building what I abandoned about four years ago. Guess I shouldn't have left the stringers up.

The red looks nice against all the green. As for pedalfile I think its more like a 37.0000001 foot drop.
