Sol Mountain Lodge has been a huge supporter of my photography work over the years. After upgrading to the new A1, we headed up to the alpine lodge to test it out and disconnect from society for a few days. I've thought about shooting a mountain biker on this island for years, and Ted, even though he was nursing a broken wrist, was keen to try it out. After a bunch of experimentation on various angles and tricks, we settled on this unique composition with his reflection standing out. The image quality of the new sensor in the A1 is impressive, with no editing required.
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
