  • Hockey hit
    The Wenatchee Wild could close out their playoff series with a win over Minnesota Wilderness last Friday night so I needed to cover that game. Whenever I can get a shot of a hit like this I'm pretty happy. Hockey is a tough game to photograph with so many people - players and refs - moving in and out of the frame. The Wild ended up losing the game so that meant I'd need to show up to Saturday night's game too in order to photograph the players reaction to either winning or losing.
  • Hockey sign
    In the second game, I noticed a fan holding up a sign that was somewhat confusing. I was thankful the ref was nearby to include in the frame.
  • Victory
    The game came down to overtime - bumping up against my deadline - but thankfully the game was over in that first overtime period as the Wild scored the only goal of the game. I jumped over the wall and hurried onto the ice to capture the happy moment as Wenatchee Wild teammates surround their goalie, Chase Perry, after he held the Minnesota Wilderness scoreless, having 48 saves, in a 1-0 in overtime win Saturday night at the Town Toyota Center arena.
  • Tulips
    My first stand-alone hunt day was Monday, looking for an image for Tuesday's newspaper. I had been looking around at tulips and was searching for a nice color contrast between the flowers and the background when I spotted an interesting fence that had slats cut into the shape of one of the flowers. After talking to the homeowner and working the scene by mainly using the fence as a backdrop, I decided to try framing the garden through one of the cutouts. I think it made the image more interesting and I was blessed when a pedestrian walked by in the background.
