Over Teakettle

Every Sunday evening at the base of Whistler Mountain they have the Fire & Ice festival.  Besides fire dancers and fireworks, the main event is the stunt show put on by the Whistler ski school.  At the conclusion of the show, they put up a huge burning ring and jump through it to the delight of the crowd.

It’s a tough thing to photograph between the huge crowds, the darkness, the distance to the jumpers, and the high speed.  I wasn’t in a good spot because frankly, I was in the Garibaldi Lift Company enjoying a cold Kokanee.

Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 70-200 f/4L @ 200mm  ISO 3200, f/4, 1/200 sec.  A Canon 580ExII flash stops the action.
