Back on the ice

It's hockey time... one of my favorite sports to watch and photograph.

St. Norbert's home venue has a press box directly over the benches about 14 feet above the ice, allowing you to shoot straight down for an overhead view near the boards. The odds of something great happening in that exact spot are slim, but it never hurts to be ready for it with a short lens.

St. Norbert College's Dylan Exton (27) pulls the puck out of the air while defended by University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point's Kyle Greco (9) in the first period of a game at the Cornerstone Community Center in Ashwaubenon, Wis., Friday evening, Nov. 13, 2009.

St. Norbert College's Justin Favreau (4) puts a big hit on University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point's Reed Lally (12) in the first period.

St. Norbert College players rush teammate Brandon Longley (23), far right, after his second period shorthanded goal – SNC's first of the season.
