Canon 5D Mark III + 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. 1/1000sec @ f/4.0
This is from the same afternoon when we did the heli-drop up on Joss Peak. This is Ted Morton riding down a rock slab that ended into pretty much nothing. We were filming an advert at the time, but I was also taking photos and just saw that frame. There were a whole bunch of photos in the sequence, but with this one I really like the way that his torso and backpack is silhouetted. Earlier in the sequence he would have been too far up in the corner of the frame. With this one it’s nice because your eyes are drawn down into the valley, but then you follow the ridgeline back up and you realise there’s actually a rider there.
