Top 10 Favorite Action Shots of 2009

There was no way I could narrow 8,000 pictures down into 5 favorite action shots, so I did 10. Everyone loves a Top 10. These are my favorite action shot. Action shots are tough. I'm not very talented, I have a very basic DSLR and I sit in different spots. I'm no Mr. Fred, but I managed to find some pictures I really liked. These aren't necessarily great pictures, but they are pictures taken during an actual game (not warm up) and I like them for crazy reason or another.

10. Clarkson in front of the net. My husband and I went to Raleigh for Game 6 of the series between the New Jersey Devils and the Carolina Hurricanes. HORRIBLE out come, the Devils got shut out. I like this picture though because I like Clarkson and he is working hard trying to make something happen. You can also see that bastard Cam Ward (a/k/a robogoalie last season).

9. Nabby trying to glove an airborne puck. Serge and I went to Nashville in March to see the Sharks take on the Predators. We had great seats and I took a ton of pictures I liked. I love this picture because you can see the puck in mid air. I wish you could see Nabby, but oh well.

8. Tim Thomas being fantastical. Nothing like a picture where you see the back of the goalie and a few blurry shots of the others guys. I like it because you can see the puck to the side where Tim just made a great save.

7. Rich Peverley's shoot-out goal on Ty Conklin. Pevs is blurry, but I love that you can see the puck in the net (red arrow) and you can see his watter bottle in the air (white arrow).

6. Kaptain Kovy fights. Not a great picture, but a picture of a great event. The fans went nuts when he and McCabe fought. It was after this fight that Kovy signaled to the crowd to cheer loudly as he was escorted to the box.

5. Pavs tracking the Puck. Not the best picture, but I love how you can see Pavs' eyes following the puck.

4. The Vokounator. Great shot of Vokoun butterflying left-to-right to make the save. If you look at the little red arrow you can see a Thrasher's stick with the puck on it.

3. Toby singing soprano in 3...2...1. This picture cracks me up. You can see Toby bracing himself to take one for the team. It did NOT hit him fortunately.

2. Hockey... U R doin it rite. Marty Reasoner is totally busting his ass trying to get a goal on Ozzy. He's working so hard his tongue is hanging out.

Drum Roll!!!

My favorite action shot of 2009

1. Jared Boll and Toby Enstrom in front of the net. For most of the other pictures, they aren't that great, but I like something about it. I actually think this is a good picture. I love the intensity on their faces and I love Pavs peeking through the two of them.

Yay! Glad you agree and thank you for the comments. I don't know sometimes there is something about a picture that you just like or that moves you. I just love that picture.
