Birds on snowboards

What do you do when there is only two hours of daylight and no birds or creatures of the animal kingdom to photograph? In Akureyri photographing snowboarders is an option. Yesterday I shot some photos of snowboarders flying high at the local training facility. To begin with there was a bit of sun, but soon it faded. Using the Nikon 14-24 gives an extra dimension in this since it can to my humble opinion give a great perspective. When the sun was completely gone I switched to Nikon 24-70 and made experiments with the R1C2 ringflash – only two SB-R200 flashes. Most of the time I don´t like using flashes for action or situations you can´t control well and this was no exception. They did though a better job than I expected. At least I had fun.
