And then he landed...

When this happened, I stopped taking photographs as he hit the ground. He doubled right over on his neck & I thought I had just witnessed someone die or at the very least be paralysed but he survived. I don't think he was very happy for a while

I wish the classic hits sign with the web address wasn't in the background

Great action... I know it's hard to do, but I'd like the focus on his face instead of his chaps.

Timely done, though, for sure!
