Snow, flight and light

Sochi. The Extreme Park. Winter Olympic Games 2014. Ski acrobatics. The complexity and beauty of this real Winter Olympic sport is amazing and mesmerizing. Snow, slope, light, a second acceleration ski jumping board, jump, complex acrobatic elements in flight and verified before millimeters landing. For spectators it all merges into a single fleeting moment not without elements of the show - someone fell, and someone has complied with all the elements perfectly - there are winners and losers, light and music. But the ability of photography to capture a moment allows us to feel the unreality, slowed beauty of flight and a certain other-worldliness of this sport.
