    Nice series. Love the movement in the first three. #3 could stand on it's own without the light trails. Great shot!

    Thanks...I had never done longer exposures with mt bikers at night before. I really had to be mindfull not to blind them with the flash. So i was bouncing it off tagboard and other stuff. Those guys had be racing since 3pm and it was about 10pm at that time, so didn't want to cause them to crash.

    The first three are just... how does one describe them? They are amazingly unique and different. it almost appears to be entirely fake as their bottom portion seems to be engulfed by the surrounding. Great series.

    I actually find it kind of funny that you posted these. I was just going through some old photos with mountain bikers planning to post, but there is no way I could share next to these great images! :lol:

    Thanks both of you for such positive comments. I have had a ton of interest in photos like the top two. I shot about 50 of them like that and gave low res photos to the riders who asked. I did a jam session with a bunch riders last June and its incredible huge some guys will go with a little kodak courage in them....I'm getting stoked for ski/board season and I plan on spending a lot of time in the various terrain parks.
