Sochi Image Sequences

Many of the high energy and acrobatic events at the Sochi Winter Olympics happened at huge speed, with twists and turns blending into one movement.  Blink and you’ll miss the fractions of seconds that separate many of the top riders.

This speed, however, has prompted the likes of the BBC and The New York Times to produce stunning composite images of some of the ski and snowboard events (click through any of the images to view larger).

And this incredible sequence from American Sage Kotsenburg‘s gold medal winning run.

Then you have Henry Stuart‘s impressive 360degree images.  Head over to his page to be able to zoom and navigate amongst them all.  A couple of my favourites are the Mens Moguls and the Ski Jumping.

Some creative and fantastic photography all round.

    Hi Gary, please forgive the random message. Could you provide me with an email address for you, I would like to request permissions for one for the Sage Kotsenburg images you have for publication in a sports book edited by Routledge. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks, John
