Back flip kick at One Tree Hill

Not sure what to expect, as I headed down to the ASB Show grounds last Saturday, for Big Boys Toys 2012 show. I focused on two massive ramps, that BMX riders and Motocross riders were using to perform some insane stunts. In the background of the above photograph is One Tree Hill, a 182 metre volcanic peak. Although some of the stunts, especially from the motocross guys, pictured below are probably more impressive.

My aim was to capture a rider next to the obelisk at the top of the hill. This proved much more challenging than excepted. Firstly, I had to get further back and zoom in as far as much camera would let me. Then there was no way of telling exactly where in the air they were going to be. Still I got a couple of photographs that I like.
