Sport Picture of the Month: December

Kai Pfaffenbach, Reuters Pictures Correspondent: “Ski jumping is one of my favourite sports to photograph. It seems like each and every jump looks the same so it’s essential for photographers to find different angles or elements in the picture. This picture was taken during the first stage of the prestigious Four Hills tournament in Oberstdorf. As fog moved in, my original plan to take pictures of jumpers in the blue sky with a mountain panorama was gone and I had to look for something different. When I saw a colleague stretching out for a better angle with his camera, I decided to use him as an additional element in my picture.”
