It's been an odd weekend. I was in Quebec City shooting the Redbull Crashed Ice event for a few clients, and then caught the ice boat races on sunday (see other thread).

Crashed ice is what you get when you add 128 of the best skaters on the planet, $10 000 prize money, 100 000 spectators, a 300+ year old city, 500m refridgerated track with jumps, doubles, steps and berms and 70m+ vertical drop over the length of the course. It is boardercross on skates, with a bit more mayhem.

Crashed ice, round something of the first 16

Crashed ice, last corner an ice berm and they are hauling ass.

Out in front and some of the insane fans.

Nice pictures, reminds me of the old roller derby.
#2 is my favorite, neat perspective and angle.

The third pic really does it for me... great colour and loads to look at.. a quick glance doesn't do it and there arn't that many pictures posted in sport where you need more than a glance as it's usually a couple of players in action.. Not keen on #1, I really like #2 and #3 is brilliant... my taste I know but yes.. love it :)

Damn!! The 3rd is awesome! I like the heat of the bricks. What lens did you use for the last one?

Redbull had the entire town lit up with theatrical lights, it was ridiculous.

It was shot with a 17-40, the overhead was a canon 15mm fish and the straight on was a 70-200.

Now that is cool, would love to see it firsthand. Nice shots, love the overhead view.

Just saw this on the news! Very cool that you got to shoot it. I am a big fan of that last one too!

I don't really like number 1 because spectators take up half of the shot although there isnt much you can do about that. number 2 is awesome and 3s colors are great.

Ya #1 was odd. I was on a media platform for the first few rounds with a more clear shot, but I didn't like it. Moved and got that shot from a little bump on the snow, sorta liked how it came out. The crowd was half the story...100k people!
