ID bike picture?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I'm looking for information on this picture (rider, location, who to credit for the pic, etc) I'm also hoping for a higher-resolution version for a poster, if anyone knows where I can find one.

Josh was one of those guys that really "belongs" in the Mountain Dew commercials. He really did (and does) get a lot of attention b/c he does some crazy shizzle that lots of us wanna do, but...well you know.

He didn't do it with style. Most of the time it wasn't all that graceful. It was HUGE and a blast to watch though. I hope he heals up completely.

Trust me, if you were rolling up on the edge and looking down, it would look plenty high.

When your looking over a cliff 10 feet high thinking about riding your bike off of it, it's high.

What I find most disheartening is that, as many times as this photo has been reproduced out on the interwebs, no occurance of it that I could find credited the original photographer.

^^It was me! It's a single frame from a video I shot from my Toni hawk helmet cam, as I was doing the big drop, across the canyon.

Thanks, everyone. It is kinda strange that nobody seems to be taking credit for such an awesome pic, though.

^^ It's more a matter of a lack of giving proper credit. My best guess - - especially since it was shot outside of Kamloops - - is that it was Sterling Lorence. You could check his web site and see if it might be his:

The photo rocks hard. I especially like the rider's silhouette/shadow.

I'm afraid of heights, the highest jump I can do is only 4 feet. Blame my 14-year old guts.
