Each we week we pick a theme and compile five of our favorite photos from Lattice, our new destination for the discovery and curation of great photography from PhotoShelter members.
This week, we chose to highlight the brave, the fearless, and the downright crazy, with five photos of daredevils doing what they do best. We found these images on Lattice boards curated on varying topics, from mountain biking, to motor-sports.
Hold on for dear life and check these out:
We begin with this mountain biking POV shot by Jay Goodrich. The motion blur in the foreground sets the speed, with the in-focus bike and trail leading us towards the mountains in the distance. Pedal over to the Mountain Biking board, curated by Richard McGibbon, to see more great photos.
Next, we take the bull by the horns in this rodeo photo by Matt Idler. The cowboy’s focus is frozen in time, and surrounded by the chaotic scene around him, he becomes one with the steer, dominating it and the frame. Check out more photos like this in the Rodeo Photography board, curated by Matthew himself.
We suddenly find ourselves on the side of a cliff, in this rock climbing photo by Matthew McArdle. Hanging on with his finger tips, the climber blends in with the orange rock, and the height of mountains in the distance tell us that he still has a long way to go. This and many other hair-raising photos can be found in a board we curated on Extreme Sports.
A death-defying race has never looked so beautiful as in this shot by Scott LePage. The great combination of the streamlined cars, the tilted perspective, the flying sparks, and the orange sunset glow make this seem like a race of the future. Fill your need for speed with more shots like this in the Motorsports board that Scott curated.
Finally, take the terrifying leap alongside this skier in Scott Sady’s photo. The flash in this photo freezes the jump, which would have otherwise been silhouetted, while still exposing the beautiful scenery in the distance. For more great skiing shots, hop on over to Christopher Robinson’s board on Skiscapes.
There are still so many more photos of daredevils and extreme sports on Lattice, and not nearly enough boards to cover them all, so if you’d like to curate one on this or any other topic you can dream up, we’d love to have you! Let us know you’re interested, here.
