    If there is no snow around, just tape over the air inlets, add a cannister and rope as a marker, and hit the lake ;-)

    This event was held in Northern Sweden in July this year. Competitors have to get round the course without sinking ...

    I didn't do any noise reduction here b/c too much detail was lost otherwise, hence the grainyness in some parts of the pic

    Here the guy on the right is blurry b/c the guy on the left is overtaking him

    Should maybe have zoomed out a little here but he came closer to me than expected (I was standing in the water for all but the first 5 shots)

    Colours went a bit weird here (washed out), started having exposure and contrast issues towards the end ...

    I don't think this is a good pic technically (exposure, contrast, lens flare) but I inlcuded it b/c I felt it has an "end of the evening" feel about it - or not?

    Really annoyed that the sled is very slightly blurred in this, esp the skis, should have maybe had faster shutter speed, he was coming quite fast towards me ...

    All CC welcome :)

    Edit : all pics have been PS'd to adjust shadows/highlights and sharpness plus noise reduction in some cases

    Very interesting pics as I've never seen anything like it here in SoCal; thanks.
