This week’s Fan Photo of the Week was made by Liam Doran with the Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DG HSM lens. He tells us:
This image was taken during an assignment for OnTheSnow.com at Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Steamboat is famous for their aspen glades and there is no lack of photos from this zone. I needed a fresh look and the Sigma 10-20 f3.5 helped me with my vision. I clicked out of my skis and got as low as I could to the snow. I asked my skier, Mike Maroney, to ski off the small rock–but to absorb it not launch off of it. The 10-20 accentuates this image by making the skier look like he is much higher off the ground than he is and gives the viewer a great sense of place as it shows the aspens both vertically and horizontally. This image ran as the lead in to the online gallery and as a two page spread in Mountain Magazine’s photo annual this month.
