In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We’ll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
Shooting in Florida is always a good time, and every time I’ve had the chance to get out there I have walked away with a handful of photos I’m stoked on. It’s always a pleasure to pull into the famed Bakers Factory, which is a guaranteed stop every time I’m in town and Aldon Baker is always hospitable. On a recent trip to the country club of motocross, I set up a light in one of the corners to pop a few strobe shots. Like clockwork, Jason Anderson ripped through the corner with perfect form – feet on the pegs in a full on power slide – it was magic on two wheels and the determination in his eyes says it all. I saved the photo for the magazine, and you’ll find it on the action side of this month’s poster inside our August issue featuring Ryan Dungey on the cover. That’s “Photo of the Day” material if I’ve ever heard of it – thanks for the style, JA.
