Olympic favorite photo: Skiers flying by
Czech Republic's Martin Vrablik competes in the men's downhill race at Rosa Khutor Alpine Center during the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games on Sunday. Vrablik finished in 35th place with a time of 2 minutes, 11.73 seconds.
I made this picture after all of the Americans, who are our primary focus during the Olympics, were finished with their runs. I had nice, sharp story-telling pictures of the Americans racing, but I wanted to try some more experimental techniques for the rest of the competitors. So I slowed down the shutter speed and panned along as the skiers raced by my position near the finish line. I like the sense of motion and color of this picture.
