Boy In Motion

Maker's notes: 

I asked this boy's parents if I could take a picture of him for a photo contest at Roche a Cri State Park. I never dreamed he was going to ride down this steep hill, but I just kept on shooting and one shot really showed "motion" for me. I got 2nd place at this park for the contest--more importantly--being able to get a shot like this that I had seen in so many instructional photos. It is straight out of the camera, except for resizing.
