Light Show - Sven Martin
Is there ever a bad last-light sunset in Utah? This is from a 2009 photoshoot out near Green River. We shot some big stunts up high and, as the sun dipped down, James Doerfling surfed the ridge back down to the RV. It was a spontaneous and unplanned — I just tracked him on his way down.
Looking at the image on-camera, it looked like I simply captured a sweet silhouette. But on full-screen inspection I saw that the ‘silhouette’ was actually his shadow on the dust kicked up by the rider ahead. If you look closely, you can see the actual rider in the background somewhere. Magical mysterious moments from the desert.
