Once every few year, not only the smaller part of the Weissensee (AT) lake, but also the bigger part freezes over. This results in one giant black piece of ice, every iceskaters dream!
First race of the season and first time on the icerink with the 400mm. Great lens for this face paced indor sport under bad lighting conditions.
Nikon D3s + 400.0 mm f/2.8 @ ƒ/2.8 - 1/1000 - ISO8000
Shot the 100k Hallum speedskating marathon again this year for the Clafis A-ware Fonterra speedskating team. We did not manage to get the victory but got a nice podiumspot and some great pictures!
Used remotes again to get some different angles during the race and on the finish line. Below winner Bart Swings shot with the 400mm f/2.8 and the 16mm Fisheye simultaneously. Triggered using Pocketwizards Plus III's.
Remotes only go wrong when you do not have a high enough place to put your camera and other people can get in the line of your shot...
