This shot was taken in the Tordrillo Mountains, Alaska in 2010. I was there with an all-star crew: Travis Rice, John Jackson, Mark Landvik and the Brain Farm Cinema production crew. We were filming a segment for "The Art of FLIGHT". We were anxious to get on the snow after arriving to a week of bad weather. We didn't know that the mountains were going to welcome us with incredible conditions for the following two weeks, but something seemed pretty special on this initial evening.
This was literally the first drop of the trip. After putting the boys on the ridge, I shot this image from the heli as they were scoping their lines.
