WIN­NER OF AD­VEN­TURE CAT­E­GORY ‘ ES­CAPE’

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

“This is a shot us­ing my Mavic drone in one of the more iconic lo­ca­tions in Derby. “I just knew I wanted to get an aerial shot of that area of the trail be­cause it is so unique and well de­signed. “When I cap­tured that area I got about six or eight good cropped im­ages, but for this one it lined up re­ally well and the rid­ers were per­fectly placed. “The colours re­ally popped on all the green­ery and there was a nice vi­brancy to it, but also a con­trast to the trail it­self. “I get up to Derby once ev­ery three or four months with a group of mates and for this photo I just ducked off at the end of the day to cap­ture that im­age. It’s got a bit of ev­ery­thing and the sym­me­try also works in its favour. “I’m an elec­tri­cal tech­ni­cian by trade and pho­tog­ra­phy is just a hobby. I’ve rid­den bikes for 15 or 20 years, so it’s great to be able to pho­to­graph MTB as well.”
