Wieder ein sehr kraftvolles Foto... Find ich sehr gut...
Aber bei dem ganzen Schnee und dem Wind hätte ich echt ein bisschen Angst um meine Kamera... ;)

26 Feb 2009 7:46pm

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

great action shot in such incredible weather. That shot of yellow and the bit of red really focus the viewer's eye. Splendid.

26 Feb 2009 8:08pm

@Diane Schuller: Yes, the blizzard created a kind of natural filter for the background colors to make the red and yellow pop out. Thanks for your visit Diane!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Rehim from Baneh -Kurdistan, Iran

fantastic!!!

26 Feb 2009 8:32pm

@Rehim: Thanks for visiting Rehim! I think it's your first visit , and you are welcome to come back anytime!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

john4jack from Corvallis, United States

Wolfgang - I understand what you mean about it being totally natural. With winter shots, you can frequently get that kind of results. It's neat when it happens, and makes for some terrific photographs.

26 Feb 2009 9:22pm

@john4jack: You are so right about that one! Weather like rain, fog or winter can be our ally for interesting photos!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Sylvain Larivière from Granby, Canada

Pour mon ancien prof d'escrime, tu as bien « touché » avec ta caméra. Ce fut un plaisir de te revoir... après 35 ans... mais on n'a pas vieilli; la preuve, on se promène encore au froid pour saisir de belles images comme la tienne.

Au plaisir,

26 Feb 2009 9:46pm

@Sylvain Larivière: Merci Sylvain! Pour moi aussi c'était très agréable de te revoir! C'est vrai qu'on fait encore des folies de jeunesse à notre âge! ;-)

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Vraiment impressionnant cette tempête de neige !! et ces touches de couleurs de ce sportif qui brave les intempéries et qui semble apprécier, sont du plus bel effet

26 Feb 2009 9:57pm

@Evelyne Dubos: Merci Evelyne! C'est bien différent de tes photos d'Afrique que j'invite tout le monde de regarder!

shallowregret from Kongsberg, Norway

that sure looks cold, glad to see more people putting their equipment and fingers in danger to get the results :-)

26 Feb 2009 10:27pm

@shallowregret: Looks like it takes a descendant of Vikings or a "crazy Canuck" to brave the elements of winter for some photos!
;-) Thanks for the first visit to our blog, please come again!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Rabbit from Richmond, United States

No that looks like FUN! Super FUN - I want to try! Although I recently tried to snowboard and lets just say - I should really go for lessons next time.

26 Feb 2009 10:50pm

@Rabbit: You would need several layers of clothes though, this is not balmy Virginia! ;-) Thanks for your comment Rabbit!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

So you were out there too Wolfgang :)
A superb action shot, it looks a amazing sport.

26 Feb 2009 11:47pm

@MaryB: There were 7 of us wild enough to bring our cameras out in a blizzard with a wind chill factor of -23º C.....
Thanks for the compliment Mary, please come again!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Great mood and action in this image. I'm not saying that person is a nut for doing that in a blizzard. Yes, I am.

27 Feb 2009 12:05am

@Steve Rice: And we were nuts to bring out our cameras and risc frostbite.... ;-) Thanks for your comment,

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Fliss from Melbourne Beach, United States

Excellent work... I still think this looks like it is SO cold... I am sure that I wouldn't be able to do this... I would end up around a tree..

27 Feb 2009 12:29am

@Fliss: I would probably end up with my face being dragged on the ice.... ;-) Thanks for stopping by,

vu@granby - Wolfgang

chandan from bangalore, India

Nice portrait.....shows that the will of a person is stronger then the bizzard.... :)

27 Feb 2009 2:48am

@chandan: You are so right! Thanks for the comment,

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Definitely a winter sport you wouldn't find anywhere in Florida. Great photo!

27 Feb 2009 3:04am

@Viewfinder: Well, you have sailboarders, don't you? Ice and snow are just water in a little harder form... ;-) Thanks for your visit,

vu@granby - Wolfgang

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Great action shot, wonderful vivid yellows and reds, looks like a exhilarating thing to do

27 Feb 2009 3:06am

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

Wow!!! Intense moment...very cool.

27 Feb 2009 3:15am

@Laurie: There are several meanings of "cool" Laurie, but the weather was more cold than cool... ;-) Thanks for the comment,

Laurent from Lyon, France

extra cette photo; ou plutôt la réunion des deux photos.
Il y d'abord le coté action avec le rider et sa voile et puis il y a le lotissement et ce blizzard presque en monochrome qui est également superbe et qui donne tout son sens à la photo et la, oui, on a envi de dire WAOU!

27 Feb 2009 5:17am

@Laurent: Merci Laurent! C'était très agréable de sortir en groupe, malgré le vent froid! On dit bien "Deux têtes valent mieux qu'un", mais là nous étions 7, alors c'est encore meilleur!

vu@granby - Wolfgang

Anna.C from LA ROCHELLE, France

j'adore le titre ! la voile jaune tranche bien dans ce blizzard, tu l'as pris en bonne position ! ah, j'avais des conditions plus confortables ;-)

27 Feb 2009 1:46pm

@Anna.C: Oui, c'est bien vrai..... :-) Par contre nous étions 7 de notre groupe, alors il y avait de la chaleur humaine quand même! Tu sais, dans notre "parlure québecoise", quand il fais très froid nous dison "frette", et samedi dernièr il faisait très frette! Merci pour la visite,

Cricket-Tammy from United States

Oh goodness. I thought I commented on this yesterday. It must have been during the time my dog was nudging me for a walk.

I just love the yellow in this image. You know me..the brighter the better. I cannot help but mention how cold this looks to me. I mean really cold. I am freezing in an indoor hockey rink.

Thank you so much for sharing the images. I have a MAC that seem to be overloaded at the office. Once I got home I had no problem viewing them at home. You got some amazing shots.

Our last game is tomorrow morning.....5:30 AM! We have the early game. UGH.

27 Feb 2009 4:52pm

@Cricket-Tammy: The life of a hockey mom...... :-) Thanks for your comment,

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Superbe cette photo. La voile en couleur et le sportif en rouge au milieu du blizzard c'est grandiose. Appuyer sur les boutons de reglage de l'appareil photo ne doit pas etre evident par ce froid...

28 Feb 2009 3:21am

@akarui: Merci Olivier pour le commentaire !
Moi je porte des mitaines que le bout des doigts ouvre.

Markela from Athens, Greece

What an amazing action shot, Wolfgang! I really like how the color of the sail stands out in the mayhem of the snow storm....Nicely captured!
