David_Marx_Photo_001853-Edit-Snowboarder above a Cloud Inversion.jpg
A snowboarder flies through the air at sunset above a cloud inversion in Whitefish, Montana. This photo has sold well for me over the years in stock and I have even seen it used in one of those workplace motivational posters! This image remains one of my favorite photos for two reasons.
1. I love this photo because I know that the combination of perfect light and the right athlete does not happen very often. It took us a dozen jumps to get this one right and then the light was gone.
2. Remember that motivational workplace poster thing? Well, that is the irony of stock photography sales. The truth is that my friend and I were both skipping out of our "real jobs" when we went up the hill to make this image!
