Foto Friday – June 17, 2011

As the Stanley Cup playoffs come to an end with the Boston Bruins taking home Lord Stanley’s hallowed chalice, I felt it appropriate to honor the hockey players and fans as we all look forward to the 16 weeks until the start of the 2011-2012 season.

This photo is pretty much straight off the camera and that is what is special to me about this photo.  The color filled arena, with the orange glow against red chairs, the color just leaps off the photo, immersing and engaging the viewer.

Now that I am back in New York, I am also looking forward to a more hockey centric region and possible games at new arenas for me, out here on the east coast.

Camera – Canon EOS Rebel XT | Lens – Tamron 11-18mm | Exposure –  F4.5 – 1/5

Any hockey fans in here?

    Olympics 2010 no discussion required you know what happened 😉 #ilovehockey

    • even though the Ducks have multiple Canadian team players on the team, I still ignore all things Sid Crybaby. 🙂

    Does this mean we can no longer be friends when the hockey season starts? Go Habs Go!

    • We can still be friends, Ducks and Habs don’t play each other more than once every 3-4 years. Besides, the Habs are the only team I know the purposely will only sign french-canadian players.

  • For some reason this image didn’t come through on that link you sent last week .. great pic man! Yes, 16 weeks is just around the corner! I think the schedule comes out tomorrow actually. 

    • Scott – 

      That is odd, I will have to look into that issue.  Glad you enjoyed the photo, figured all of us non-Boston fans would be chomping at the bit for the 2011-2012 season, I know I am!
