Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
X-Raid's driver Orlando Terranova and co-driver Bernardo Graue drive over a sand dune during Stage 2 from Pisco to San Juan de Marcona at the 2019 Peru Dakar Rally, in Pisco, Peru, January 8, 2019. Reuters Photographer Carlos Jasso: "The Dakar Rally is a race like no other, a two-week long endurance challenge across Peru in some of the harshest terrain and conditions on Earth. The event spanned thousands of kilometres with motorcycles, cars and trucks racing across vast deserts and towering dunes, from the Andes to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. As a photographer, I had good access with the helicopter. I wore a harness attached to the helicopter, with the door open in order to shoot. I like the abstract images best -- the detail created by a motorcycle accelerating, the sand thrown up and combined with beautiful light so that it looks almost like a wave. You must have the camera exposures pre-set to be ready for the action, but the light is constantly shifting as clouds move across the sky. You point the camera and expose for the highlights and hope the vehicle comes into the frame and drives between the shadows of the clouds. You start reading the dunes ahead of reaching them. 'Now itÕs beautiful golden light, IÕm going to shoot a landscape.' Or 'Now there are great shadows, IÕm going to play with that.' Everything can change so quickly. Every choice you make is a gamble - the exposure you set, the dune you choose to climb." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORIES 2019" FOR THIS STORY.
