Leap of Faith

 
 

An assignment in the Portes du Soleil on the French/Swiss border provided a wealth of photographic opportunities. This huge step up gap jump was attracting a lot of interest from riders, but only a few were game for the launch. Capturing the shot took a bit of setting up - my assistant, Dave, was up in the trees with the flashes, with strict instructions not to catch any of the branches with a beam of light. He failed - you can see one branch lit up like a christmas tree, but never mind. Then it was just a matter of timing the shot so that the sun behind the rider cast their shadow on the ground, to help emphasise the height.
