How is it possible to take the following photo?

Airbrake is fully deployed.
Is there some trick how to do that?
Not the most important thing in the world, just curious ...
Because the airbrake only gets in that position by the power of air and not hydralics,im pretty sure its done by just pulling it up with your hands.Good for pictures,but the default setting might be confused for the first time you drive off,a bit like when you park your car with the aero on,but start it in the morning not in active,it re-sets its self but not till you drive off.

Click,click,click ,yes gravel and calipers dont mix,but we like the country look,rather than Tarmac the whole of the south !!!
Also not too good for the pony and trap :D

When you turn off the engine while heavy braking, the car eventually comes to a save stop, it will look like this :D

just kidding..
Maybe not just a :D,but a public health warning as well.;)
Bet it still drops though !!
