Mountain biking some of the extensive array of structures at Woodhill Mountain bike park near Auckland, New Zealand.
For this image I mounted an off camera speedlite on a Manfrotto magic arm to the structure to light the rider as the light in the forest is very low. This added great directional light making Tim stand out from the background and had the added bonus of the dramatic shadows of the bike.
