The subject of this photo is Swiss Speed Skier Philippe May. Here, he is captured in the wind tunnel in Geneva. I love the color contrast, movement of the smoke in the wind tunnel and his perfect position. I also enjoy the detail of the engineer peering through the little window on the lower right of the photograph. Just before I took this photo, my "good" camera was stolen, so I brought along my old extra... I'm so happy I did because I think it's my best photo of 2009.
