Jump Photo Sequence

I rode one of the funnest downhills of my life yesterday... and it was here in North Georgia!

A full trail review and several awesome videos are on their way, but for now check out this photo sequence of me airing it out on the Airborne Taka:






And yes, I am a lot higher in the air than I look!

A big thanks goes out to Jeremy for the photos!

Can't wait to see some of the vid you shot. That was an epic DH run! Hopefully you can pull a decent still frame shot from that one banked turn with the mountains in the background. Still wish we had stopped there for a proper shot but that trail was just too dang fun.

@Jeremy, Yeah dude I've got a lot of work to do with that footage, haha! Don't know if you've seen it yet, but I posted a teaser vid from when you were shooting stills of me on that jump: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=483706098446

And yeah I am still awed by how awesome that descent was!

Digging the progression shot. I've always wanted to do more of those.

@AJ Yeah I wasn't actually planning on creating this photo until I realized while going through the pictures that Jeremy had kept the camera still the whole time, making this pretty easy to do. 10-15 minutes in photoshop, and there ya go!

It might have turned out better if that's what we had been trying to do, though. But I'm still happy with the results!
