Some people ask why and others ask why not? Why not go to the Bonneville Salt Flats in western Utah and get photographed back flipping, while wearing dress shoes, yellow pants and a checked shirt? Who else has done that?!

With a high-end digital camera capable of shooting eight tack-sharp, 1/8000th sec., images per second, some really cool photographs are possible. Utah-based photographer Irwin Scott, for instance, photographed his friend Brent Nichols doing the Salt Flats Flip.

The photo speaks for itself.
