Today’s posted capture is another example of my Hey, let’s try this shots. Sometimes a creative angle can make for an interesting photo and this capture is no exception.

While at a nearby outdoor rink with the family I set my small point & shoot camera on the ice and pressed the shutter release. I have long since became immune to the strange looks from passers-by when taking these kind of shots, but with this photo my main concern was to avoid being skated into by an out of control skater (of which there were many).

As for the resulting image, I am actually quite surprised with the quality captured. The detail in the figure skate’s toe pick is especially impressive. Reward outweighs risk, again.
