Jan Balster -- Dublin, Ireland.

A day, filming on Mt. Hood, Oregon.

"It wraps around you. You hadn’t noticed until now. A sky with a biting clarity where spring, summer and winter exist simultaneously. Journeys, vistas. Cold smell of evergreen trees with a verdigris you can taste. A soft isolation upon arrival. Visitors only on this terrain. We mere mortals try to capture it. Chiseled forms, ready to descend on bikes. And there we are tied to a truck. Cameras, mounts, Steadicam, harness secured, ratcheted down. We follow the cyclists 50mph down, down, the mountain. 96fps all rolling down and into the camera. Spinning, riding and rolling down the mountain like a human avalanche and we capture it. Momentum to media."
