"After seeing some of the shots on the camera monitor, a few of the lads suggested I try taking a picture as a pair of them simultaneously tackled two adjacent jumps. It took some co-ordinating but eventually I had a shot in which their relative positions within the overall framing worked. Better yet, another rider balanced the image still more as he chose that moment to ride past, head down, in the background. I later elected not to correct the slanting horizon...

Oh, and no, there's no photo trickery here - they really were jumping that high".
