My first upload for three years here...sorry about that!

This was taken on a super fun day at Fernie Alpine Resort in the Canadian Rockies. I was lying on the floor and Hein hit a big backflip straight over the top of me. I had a GoPro helmet camera mounted on my head which was filming while I was shooting this. The footage became part of the film here: http://wherenextphotography.com/2011/05/where-next-videography-our-daily-shred/ (in fact, that's Hein upside down on the video thumbnail!).

Even at 1/400th of a second- the max I can get and still sync with flash using my 7D and PocketWizard Hypersync- he's quite blurred as he was really shifting! I should have panned with him but was concentrating too much on not getting landed on to think of it at the time!

Still, I quite like the shot anyway.

Very brave of both of you to attempt this, as you mention the blur, but in some ways it actually adds to the photo.
