Someone posted that pic on the old board. Very cool.
There was some discussion about whether or not it was real. I think the consensus was that it was the real thing. I know I voted it as being real.

Yep, very cool pic. I was the one who actually posted it on the old board. I still don't see how Kane Quinnell didnt move during the photo. It is real though.

I think I remember reading from a link in the prior post that the guy actually was taking video when it happened.
