Another Day at Masters World Cup
Today the cross country skiers were faced with the 4x5K relay. First two skiers do two loops of classic, skier three and four skate. Conditions were not as nice as on Monday but I often enjoy shooting while it snows. It is certainly more challenging. The view finder tends to fog up a bit and the the lens hood fills up with snow. It's all part of the game. My favourite moment of the day happened when an older athlete approached me as he proudly showed off his Swedish Army jacket. I am not sure how long he has had it but it was still in great shape and he showed me that it was made with real sheep skin. I failed to get his name but the told me that he left Eastern Germany in '68 and he had stories of ski meets prior to the second World War. A true masters skier. He was looking forward to meeting an old team later in the day. He was going to surprise him at the finish line. A true masters skier. Below are my favourite shots from today's relay. I am shooting alongside three other local photographers for this event and the photos can be purchased at the event desk at Sovereign Lake and will be available online at a later day.
