When I'm not taking photographs I'm likely to be skiing. I combine both activities if I can. This was a Snow Cross competition at Glenshee, Scotland in March 2014. I captured this snowbaord competitor in the air over the crest of the first jump a few yards from the start line. This was a particularly steep jump which if taken too fast led to too much air and a hard, flat landing. This competitor got it spot on - just a little air and landed softly on the downslope.
The Ethiopian runner Genzebe Dibaba powers ahead to lead and win the Womens International 3km event at the BUPA Great Cross Country Run in Edinburgh, January 2013. I was struck by the difference in expression of Dibaba with that of her nearest rival and fellow Ethiopian, Meseret Defar.
Cross country runners competing in the Great Edinburgh Cross Country Run in January 2017. For the last lap of the race I positioned myself next to the water jump with the hope of capturing the runners leaping. Occasionally runners fall here, so they need to be confident of a safe landing. Here the two leaders take a leap of faith, each hoping not to lose ground over the water jump.
