MATT WOOD

WIN­NER OF SPEED CAT­E­GORY ‘ DUST TO DUSK’

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

“We were trav­el­ling back from an event in Craigieburn For­est in New Zealand and we pulled over for a p**s stop and it was the last light of the day. “The boys had stopped there the year be­fore and got some bangers, so we thought we’d have an­other crack at it. “It’s just on the ridge­line in the Lindis Pass. It was just a bang on shot where the sun was go­ing be­hind one moun­tain and it was only that very ridge that still had light on it. “The rider is Ted Mor­ton and as soon as he rolled past, the sun went be­hind the hill and the light was gone. So it re­ally was right place, right time. “I’m a tradie by day, so the pho­tog­ra­phy is just a hobby. I used a Canon 80d for this shot. It’s just off the shelf cam­era and not that ex­pen­sive re­ally. But it’s amaz­ing what you can do with it, though.”
