SHOOT: GSHC vs. SC Langnau [updated]

Genève Servette Hockey Club vs. SC Langnau Tigers

Last night some friends invited me to Les Vernets (Geneva's ice rink) for an ice hockey game: GSHC vs. SC Langnau. I though it would be a great opportunity to take some action/sport shots.

It was my first time photographing this sport - it definitively is a fast game and it was not easy as we were seated behind a protective net and I had to shoot through glass. Nevertheless, my trusted D3s and 70-200 did a great job in focusing through these obstacles. We had a great evening, our team won (6-1) and I managed to get some good shots!

On Friday the 21st of January I was invited again to shoot GSHC at home but this time I had a press pass and was on the ice. Below are the pictures from that game. (click to view large)
