I remember this shot very well; we were working on a video project. A local from Ibiza sent us a message about this spot, with a good orientation for sunset shooting. As always, on a video project, it's really hard to have time for using big strobes, trying different angles and every picture must be almost perfect.
This is exactly what happened, video guys using sunset time and light, and when everything is done, just said, "Your turn!" :) Thanks guys! But I was super lucky, because the sunset was cloudy, and the last rays just created nice colors. It's a secure shot, because I knew there is only one shot, especially for the rider, jumping in the dark after a full day of filming.
I remember when I saw the shot on the screen, the sharpness, the colors, the action... I was filled! Photography is magic when it works like this. Pushing a button and time is stopped.
