Sierra Nevada, Spain
Reuters photographer Paul Hanna covered this month's FIS Freestyle Ski and Snowboard World Championships in Spain's Sierra Nevada mountains. Below is his account of capturing the breathtaking mid-air images: "The key to capturing the beauty of freestyle skiing is about getting the images of competitors flipping and twisting their way through the evening sky. The amount of time the competitors spend in the air is impressive. The photo of China's Qi Guangpu performing an aerial during the men's aerial training was taken as the sun was setting over the mountains. But capturing the aerial as well as the fading sunset was difficult as there was no vantage point to get the two elements in the same frame. Cables blocked the view to the jumps and my position was too low to capture very high jumps. A small scaffolding tower holding a few cables up became my best bet. Without waiting to see if anyone would object and laden with cameras, I managed to scale the tower and photograph a handful of athletes before the light disappeared."
