I had a lot of fun getting this one. It may seem high speed, but really I wanted to capture the pebbles of gravel popping off my finger tips. And the faster I went... the more they seemed to blend with the asphalt. So the slower the better.... But with less speed the higher the possibility of hitting an abrupt stop into a unexpected ejection (If you've been skateboarding and hit a gravel patch, you know what I mean). So the unexpected happened, of course... but after rollin' and tumblin' a few times, everything came together. I hope you enjoy the result!

    This shot is so unnerving. I feel like I'm going to be run over! You did an exceptional job. It's nice to see not only a stunning viewpoint but also a stunning photo in general, at the same time. :)

    yea man! i skate..and I know what you mean bout' fart rocks. Not fun at all. musta been scary shooting this. I love it. although, one thing confuses me. The way your hand is. Its like its the wrong hand or something. Maybe' I'm picturing you going the wrong way? But your feet are setup as if you are going toward the top of the frame...hmmmm...still stumped..
