Monday means there is a long road till the #weekend. Hope the week will go down in a straight line like this part of #highway95 from #lasvegas to #reno. #motosoul #roadtrip to @smokingseagulls home base back in December #2014
Magic Moment visiting one of my favorite National Parks in the US way back in time, when a digital camera did not fit my budget at all. Must be late 90´s shoot with a #Nikon FE3 and #50mm f/1.4 AIS lens on a #Fuji #Provia100F at my first visit of #joshuatree. I have been there multiple times afterwards and had the chance to share the joy of moments like that with @faction_audiovisual and @caro_lineee in the past years. #Scanning old #slides can bring up some surprises... #thatstheway #california #goodlife
Looking forward to see some sick #fmx action from @levisherwood any time soon. I shoot this #doublegrabflip at the #redbull #xfighters event in #lasventas last year. There is quite a few riders, who pull that #sick #trick nowadays, but i got lucky enough to snap mr. #sherwood in a very extended moment. If it comes to #execution & #style, you can definitly take some lessons from the #ktm rider. Follow me here in instagram for more #freestyle #motocross action popping up now and then with a good mix of other #motorsport images as well. 👊🏻
Dezember is one of the best times to ride #ocotillo. Around 5 years ago I had the chance to go with the #goodfather of #fmx and it was a blast to see Mike Metzger in the natural terrain he crew up riding. Together with Mat Mougel from Faction Audiovisual we filmed the #metzger´s part for our documentary #thatstheway. If you want to see this natural quarter hit as a moving image visit: thatstheway.tv and check out the trailer. In case you want to order a DVD, just let me know (comment or PM me)... i have a few left and would give them away real cheap. Could the best #xmas gift for a real #dirtbike fan.

Had a spectacular night seeing the total #eclipse of a #superfullmoon. On this pic you see the moon coming half way out of the earths shadow at 4:53am (CET). According to #NASA, supermoons have only occurred 5 times in the 1900s – in 1910, 1928, 1946, 1964 and 1982. After the September 27/ 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse, a #Supermoon eclipse will not happen again for another 18 years, until October 8, 2033. The location I took this one is the #Meteorological #Observatory #Hohenpeißenberg. It is the oldest mountain weather station in the world. It is located in the municipality of Hohenpeißenberg, about 60 kilometres southwest of Munich (GER) and at 977 metres above sea level. Meteorological data is collected on the site continuously since 1781. Thx to @clicklac for the long, fun & freezing night and the support to make it happen! #canon #1DX #600mm Blooming Blutmond Hohenpeissenberg Wetterstation

#FMX rider @sheenyfmx getting ready for the #xfighters world tour final in Pretoria 2014. While the shoot was taken #Sheehan was in his focus zone. Within the next secounds he picked up his #Honda #CRF450 and went out to bring everything he has against #KTM rider Dany #Torres. Around 5min later Josh Sheehan was the worthy winner of the event in South Africa and at the same time the new Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour Champion.

Getting ready for Madrid I found a card that i did not download so far from my visit at #fitzland after #xfighters Mexico. I meet @justinairtime & his buddy @jrize549 hanging out at @jfitzo. Justin - which i saw the first time ripping that AFMXA comp in Pala back in 2010 - had a bad crash injuring his spine is not able to walk & uses a wheelchair most of the time. As far as i understood, the doctors still have hope that his condition will get better. No matter what, Justin has never given up on the idea to be back on the bike. John drove him & his new #Honda #crf110 - which he safed a long time for - all the way from Oregon to the #fitzarmy HQ in #temecula give his friend the best options to get back on #2wheels. I was more then impressed on Justin´s will & skill to jump that smaller ramp set-up & thats why i want to share that moment and little story with you. The moon was not out at this point, but Justin rode till it was dark, taking his chance to #fly & feel that wind in his face again. I wished he could fly to the moon and back, when it made CLICK on this one.... Fitzland Flying Metal Mulisha Motorcycles Motox Temecula
In less then one week #redbull #xfighters in #lasventas is going into the next round. Five years ago @twitchthis88 had his last appearance in #madrid and it marked for me the point, when the 1st generation of #FMX riders slowly started to fade out of the contest biz. If you look at the #riders list of this years event, you still find some old dogs on the list but the young generation is pushing in strong. @clintonmoorefmx and @david_rinaldo for example have been riding the rookie session in that year, while others came for the last time. Time flies, but good to be still involved after all those years. Looking forward to see you in Spain next week for the best show on earth!

#redbull #xfighters sents you around the world.... The atmosphere last week in Madrid´s #lasventas bullring was unbelieveable once again. The real deal, but do you remember when the atmosphere was very electrifying? We had two events right in front of a building that was on the cover of #pinkfloyd ´s album #animals. I had the chance to snap this one in the generator room, which only a handfull of people have been visited since the plant was closed in 1983.

Let´s to cont. in the line of pictures.... one of the last ones was from Battersea Powerstation but #bigben is quite close to it, if you follow the river #thames..... Around a decade back, i had to travel to London regulary for meetings in the #vans euro office. Even if #london is one of the popular tourist towns on the planet, i never got the vibe really. But crusing the city at night with my old analog cam was always worth it. Have quite unique shoots from those nightwalks. This one even tells the capture time....
