    Awesome. Somehow your eye has to deal with perspective before this shot makes sense.

    No kidding. This is where action photography started! Superb timing on old technology!!

    Brilliantly timed and composed. Cartier-Bresson would have been proud of this one. Shame we don't know who took it...
