On New Years some buddies and I built a jump over a picnic table and took turns towing each other in with a snowmobile.. too much fun.. we definitely had a lot more crashes than landings. Cropped, converted to bw, and tweked levels and sharpness in PSCS.

Having trouble getting my bearings here, and as such, am having trouble seeing the unlucky landing. Challenge aside, I like the abstract nature of this, the high contrast, and the action.

As he slipped over the edge both hands reached for the sky hook that wasn't there!!! Nice composition, although it doesn't look like a landing yet.

Nice stop-motion, but I wish you had been on his other side to get his face.

he hasn't landed yet, and nothing indicates it will be a bad one...
