Photo Of the Month: The E*Thirteen geeks show me Annadel’s finest.

Milner_L9992382

A lack of snow in Tahoe meant ditching my March snow-shoot plans with regulars Jeremy Jones and Mike Basich, and instead starting my mountain bike year early instead. A now annual trip to California included hooking up to shoot features with the legendary enduro rider Mark Weir, original MTB pioneer Joe Breeze and the geek-ish bods behind the tech-focussed brand E*Thirteen. The latter being based a stone’s throw from Annadel State Park, Santa Rosa (at least if you have a strong throwing arm) gave me a chance to revisit this great flowy riding spot and nail some beautiful shots for the forthcoming MBUK mag feature and GoPro video content for an EpicTV Gear Geek episode. Low, late light, amazing twisted trees and damn good riders always combine to get me inspired: all I had to do was dodge the cougars and poison oak as a scurried about in the undergrowth looking for the angle. Go geeks! Leica M9/Zeiss 18 f4.
