Ice hockey goalie waiting for something to happen



Quick lunch break photo: I shot this one last night during my team's beer league game. I'm out with an ACL tear -- total pain in the ass -- so trying to work on my sports photography skills until healed.

Although the score was close last night, my team spent much of the game on offense, meaning our goalie was a spectator for most of the evening. I pretty much like everything about the photo -- the sense of being frustrated and/or bored at being far from the action, a rink mostly empty except for the players on the ice and the timelessness perhaps conveyed by the image being in black-and-white.

I used my 70-300mm telephoto lens to shoot most of the game. This one, however, was taken with my Nikon 10-24mm wide-angle lens; I was screwing around and trying to capture the surroundings. 

Here's my SmugMug site. Me on Twitter.
