In adventure sports, as in life in general, there are many blink and you'll miss it moments.
But thanks to the wonders of photography we can freeze time and take in that picturesque sunset, the gently falling snowflakes or the way your best mate coughs up his drink when he laughs too hard.
Where would we be without the ability to take shots like this eh?
1) A perfectly timed photo can tell a whole story...
2) Or it can just sum up one truly insane moment
3) It can make you laugh
4) Or cry (then laugh a bit)
5) It can give animals martial arts skills...
6) Or super powers
7) Really weird super powers
8) Well timed photos can make anything seem more epic
9) And make epic things hilarious
10) Perfectly timed pics can be works of art
11) And convey feelings...
12) Such as abject horse-based terror!
13) They can help you figure out where things went wrong...
14) ...so wrong
15) And help you to avoid embarrassing situations in the future
16) Awesomely-timed photos let us see who we really are
17) How we cope under pressure
18) Or face inevitable defeat
19) And deal with everything that life throws at us
20) These little moments
21) Point to the bigger picture
22) Helping us realise that life is meant to be shared
23) And that we should make the most of every second of it.
