Edina siblings enjoying the snow.
We regularly feature photo submissions from our Images of Edina photo contest in the pages of Edina Magazine and online. This month, we asked Brandon Winkel to tell us about his photograph titled Fun in a Flurry at Pamela.
Where was the photo taken?
At Pamela Park.
What inspired the shot?
It was an outdoor practice for his little sister Berit’s hockey team. Davin was playing goalie for the girls for fun … it was just such a beautiful evening.
What’s your favorite thing about this image?
The giant snowflakes and the contrast of the old wood boards and beat up net in contrast with all of his new age goalie gear I think looks cool. Kind of old time/new time hockey.
What type of camera do you use?
I used my Olympus OM-D.
Do you typically take photos like this or is this out of the norm for you?
I like taking pictures but lately I have been just enjoying the kids’ stuff in the moment. I tend to miss things when I’m shooting. In this instance, I was able to put on my skates and get shots from on the ice … so that was kind of fun.
What tips would you offer others considering submitting photos to contests like ours?
My wife is always telling me to share my pictures. I never really think they are cool enough but since this one was in an Edina park, I figured you guys might enjoy it. My only regret is that he does not have his Edina Jersey. The yellow practice jersey works though.
