Which is exactly what I said right before this happened. I wanted to turn around to take some pictures of a nearby bridge for the "Diagonal" contest, when this happened. The gravel at the edge of the road gave away and I started sliding down the hill into some trees. This all happened at three miles per hour, so I am fine, and the bike is just a little muddy. When I stood there trying to figure out how to get myself out of this mess, I thought, "Why not enter the other contest?"

Not exactly how I wanted to enter my first challenge on this site, but lemons, lemonade, and all that

This fits the challenge admirably, but to me its simply a record shot. It could have been an insurance claim photo, there is little more in it than that.
