Lambton Shores Tyke/Novice – Image of the Week


The Tournament – Lambton Shores Tyke/Novice

The Lambton Shores tournament was held in Thedford, ON, from Feb 13-15, 2015, featuring teams from the Tyke and Novice divisions. The tournament would have ran perfectly thanks to excellent direction from Mike Rombouts if not for the nasty weather. We were snowed in on Saturday evening, and nearly twenty people spent the night at the arena.

The Image

Here is the Lambton Shores Tyke/Novice image of the week. I went with a theme of ‘celly’s’ (celebrations) this week. It is very cute to watch the young kids celebrate their goals and it always puts a smile on the faces of the people in the stands. I chose this one because the excitement in the players face shows how much joy hockey can bring to a child and I also liked the fact that the players are celebrating together. The goal they are celebrating took teamwork to pull off and that’s shown here.

The Settings

Lambton Shores is one of my favourite places to shoot. The arena is bright and I shoot right at centre ice. One of the lights went out over the weekend so to compensate I adjusted my shutter speed from 1/1250 to 1/1000. This image was shot at f2.8, 1/1000, and ISO 6400.
