The Mountain by 1pen The Mountain by 1pen
If you go by the major freeways in Utah you'll see this beaut on the digital billboard/marquees around town. Caught this shot of goalie Igor Bobkov, before a morning skate at the Olympic Oval. It was tough to get this shot because aside from that gorgeous saturated multi-coloured lighting, it is incredibly dark in the tunnel, and I had to angle the camera in a way that I could neither use eye-view or live-view. Had to army crawl in front of him to get this perspective, much to his bemusement, and I really wish I could have gotten a little lower and a touch wider. But, hey, I got a great view of him that would amplify his height and build, and he had an equally great view of my...uh...low-cut shirt. It was a win-win.

I love my job, and I'm very fond of the athletes I work with. All images are ęcopyright 1pen and my sports media company.You may NOT use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.

The composition in this photo is amazing. It's SO awesome that it's being featured in the Griz's ads.

Also, yay goalies!

Thank you! Hehehe, a lot of my shots are, it's the job.  ;)  But it's still fun to see an already ginormous goalie made into an even more ginormous goalie on a billboard. :giggle:
