    07/08 Maggot Photo of The Year?

    I don't think this thread has been created yet. The one from last season had so many amazing pics in one spot that I figured it should be done again. I know there is the ongoing pow shots thread, but this one should be skiing related, but not just pow related.

    Anyway, this one gets my vote for composition, angle, and overall radness of the trip that produced this pic. One of the best days of the season by far!

    Care to elaborate? I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess he has taken more than one shot over the years.

    They are all sweet, but that second one in the giant trees is unreal.

    Wow, how did I forget about this one? Its from skiingislife's BC TR correct?

    Damn, I would pay good money for the largest size print that could be made of this before it got too noisy.

    Those pics above are exceptional. I'd also add this one from this thread https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/s...d.php?t=108362

    I too, know nothing, but I think the short answer is long exposure plus flash at the end when skier enters frame.

    gunders shot ^^^. hands down. one of the radder photos ive ever seen. but i feel like his status as super-rad-photo-dude-who-gets-published-in-powder-and-ski-journal-all-the-time should disqualify him. that's be like picking drew or alka for mag huck o' the year.
