My pal shredding the quarry near Penshaw.

Off camera SB-800 mounted on tripod to his right (our left!). Flash head zoomed to 85mm (IIRC), camera all manual. No diffusers - wanted the 'bare bulb' effect to add punch and grittiness.

Jim, I love the shot. The lighting is well controlled and the composition/action really works... but what the hell is going on with that border!

Cheers guys. Matt, I designed the border with you in mind. I call it Blue Sky Thinking.
