This is Nick jumping over my camera while launching off a steep drop. I put a very wide-angle lens (17mm) on my camera and positioned it just below the lip, on the steepest part of the bank and used a remote to fire the camera. Nick then got a run at the drop and launched off this hill and over my camera as I fired it. It took a number of tries to get a decent results. Shooting straight into the sun made it a bit tricky – I was hoping to catch Nick while he was blocking some of the sun – this was as close as I got. The landing area was very steep, but for some reason it doesn’t appear nearly as steep in this photo.
