Every Monday I show a travel photo from some of my journeys around the world including local spots in Australia like Darwin, Townsville, Brisbane and Alice Springs to overseas like Japan, London, Budapest, California, Vienna and the Netherlands.
Today we are not traveling far at all from where I live. I wanted to shoot this spot for quite some time and needed the right scooter guy to ride it. I sent Ryan Williams a photo of the location and he was keen right away. This is a spillway off the side of a dam so it only gets wet when it overflows but it’s ridable when dry. It took a hell of a lot of effort for Ryan to get this trick. It’s all up hill run-up, the curve is about 8 foot and it’s rough, mean really rough so it makes it slow to roll on..Ryan always pulls through with the good though landing this flair and we walked away with an amazing photo..It was used as a double page spread in a major magazine. Photographed with my 5Dmk2 and 3x580EX speed lights.
