Continuing my quest to capture peak sports action, I caught a series of photos last night as the West Genesee Wildcats took on the Baldwinsville Bees in high school boys ice hockey.
West Genesee Wildcats defensemen goes airborne clearing the puck against the Baldwinsville Bees at the Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena in Baldwinsville, New York on Tuesday, January 31, 2012. West Genesee won 3-0. Nikon D700/70-200VR, 1/500s, f/2.8, ISO 2200, EV +1.3, 200mm focal length.
A teammate’s stick had tripped the West Genesee Wildcats player causing him to go airborne. He still had the presence of mind to continue to shoot the puck out of his team’s zone. While this is something you see all the time in Olympic figure skating competition, hockey players like to keep their skates on the ice.

What a fantastic shot Scott!!!
I pray my boy never wants to play hockey….I don’t have the nerves required to watch. 😉
Hey, now, hockey is a great sport and you’d love watching him play. Not to mention you’ll be great at photographing the sport with a little help. 😉
Wow Scott. I assume you sell photos like that !
I will upload to a gallery to my photo website for players and their families to look over and, if they wish, purchase prints or a downloadable file. There was quite a few of my photos on the posters displayed at Senior Night.
Cool! This is one of those “happy dance ‘cuz I got it” shots! 🙂
Pretty impressive play. Oh, and the photo ain’t bad either . . . 🙂
