"Lost Coast Birds."
This image was created while flying in a helicopter from Juneau, Alaska, to Cordova, Alaska. We took the less-traveled route along the so-called "Lost Coast"—one of Alaska's most remote areas. As we turned the corner and started flying along the beach, wave after wave of seagulls filled the sky and nearly blacked out the ocean below.

The Sultanate of Oman camel race at Al Fulaij is the closing race for the season. The start of the race is the most dangerous moment, when the nerves often take over.

In 2009 Shaun White spent months training on a privately owned halfpipe in Silverton, Colorado, learning new tricks that helped him win his second Olympic Games gold medal. Brain Farm Digital Cinema came in to film the helicopter angles and got about as close they could before White would get engulfed in the rotor wash (air stirred up as a result of the helicopter's rotor).

Shot through the side window of an Aston Martin Vantage GT3 during a driver change at the qualifying for the ADAC Zurich 24-hour race at the legendary Nürburgring race track in Germany. Ferdinand Stuck is getting ready regardless of the fact that some oil leaked on to the engine block and smoke is closing in, isolating the race driver from the hectic scene that's going on around him.

Professional skateboarder Rodney Mullen doesn't always enjoy the limelight. The originator of the kick-flip, a staple in any skateboarder's bag of tricks, often skates solo-away from prying eyes-in the middle of the night in parking garages, empty warehouses and,as in this shot, a shipping container. El Segundo, California, at 10 pm.
