Giant Slalom Skier at a Gate
This photograph is from the recent alpine ski racing season and shows a skier at a gate during a giant slalom race. I took photos of many skiers at this gate but only a few showed the action and intensity of this one, which is why it is a favorite. The aggressive body angle indicates the high speed of the skier and also makes the composition more dynamic with the diagonal line formed by his body.
400mm lens, 1/1600 second at f/4, ISO 200.
