Downhill giant slalom ski race

This photograph is of a downhill skier racing on a giant slalom course.  He has just rounded a gate and is about to drop down a deep slope.  The forward portion of the skis are already in mid-air.
I was on an adjacent hill that was slightly lower.  I would have preferred to be slightly lower but the hill was too steep for me to keep my footing.  Nonetheless, I was able to get the skier coming right at the camera with his legs offering a strong diagonal line.
