"This shot was taken in the Tordrillo Mountains, Alaska, [while] filming a segment for 'The Art of Flight.' We didn't know that the mountains were going to welcome us with incredible conditions for the following two weeks, but something seemed pretty special on this initial evening. This was literally the first drop of the trip. After putting the boys on the ridge, I shot this image from the heli as they were scoping their lines." -- Fyans
