    Your 3 best biking photos of 2011

    Lets see what you did all year!

    Rules:
    - post up to three photos only per person - take your pick!
    - must be biking related
    - photos must have been taken in 2011
    - only photos you have taken yourself.
    - please post the actual photos in here, not just a link to a photo.

    There are some really good photographers on this forum, it would be really interesting to see what everyone thinks is their "best off" the year.

    ok, it seems all I did was shoot people flying through the air. A bit boring, but to get things started, my 3:

    Near the finish of the Smithfield DH Racetrack in Cairns, Australia



    "Donkey" entering a low earth orbit at the Bowl in Cairns



    And finally, Bryce testing a newly built jump with style (Townsville)

    Well, while I've been shooting quite a bit this year, as it turns out, for some reason, it hasn't been biking photographs? WTF? I mean, I've been riding plenty. Anyway, it seems unlike "lelebebbel", most of my friends stay closer to the ground.

    Little Creek Mesa - Hurricane, UT May 2011


    Mt. Pinos - Los Padres National Forest, CA October 2011


    "Car Crash" - Santa Monica Mountains, CA November 2011


    Still some riding days before the end of the year, I think I'd better get my camera out more!

    These three images are from bike-packing across the Frost Plains of the Northern Australian Alps, last March and April. I didn't take many bike related shots this year but I sure took a lot of photos, thanks to being on a bike.

    Wow this thread just made me realize how little I took in 2011. If it was 2010 I would have some great stuff. Need more to get back to snapping them.

    'Best' is so subjective. Technically closest to perfect? Favorite moment from a ride? Most evocative landscape?

    Ask me yesterday, or tomorrow, and I'll pick a different 3.

    But today:

    And the winner is........(drum roll).........MoOse.....based on the 3 most critical components of photoghraphy, which are;
    1. Subject matter
    2. Subject matter
    3. Subject matter

    WELL DONE MoOse!!!!

    To all the others, also well done, keep 'em coming, and pay attention to the afformentioned '3' rules.

    One day, my warped sense of humour is going to get me into trouble....

    Humm. Most of my best mtb pics were taken in 2012, but I'll play fair game.

    Both are taken from Mt Royal in Montreal. The first is my little "gravity" pump track like I like to call it. Second was taken from the parking lot (bmike sure know the place too) on Halloween night.

    Last one was from a bike trip to Burlington in october. My dad was going fishing, me and my brother were going to ride. Stuck at Lacolle borders for 3 hours. I took out my bike and rode the neutral zone meanwhile. We also caught a fly.

    But whenever I get the chance, I take my Nikon D7000.

    Awesome pics everyone!

    Always hard to pick but I think these are my three:


    Sierra on her Singlespeed by Anthony DeLorenzo, on Flickr


    Money Shot by Anthony DeLorenzo, on Flickr


    Fish Lake by Anthony DeLorenzo, on Flickr

    It was interesting to see that two of those were taken on my pocket PS camera. Just shows that sometimes the best camera is the one you have with you.

    First two are from the Ribbon in Grand Junction - an awesome ride if you are in the area.

    Mikesee you have a great eye and spend time in some really unique places and are savy of good light. You could easily double the impact of your images with good digital darkroom editing but that is not a criticism, more of an enticement. I know the images take a beating in the posting process but the northern light image is so beautiful, likewise the beach scene. Such beautiful dramatic light
