Sports picture of the day

February 13, 2009
Sports Pictures Editor Greg Bos has varied the theme today and gone for a picture from the world ski jumping championships. Here’s Greg’s view of the shot:
I like this picture from Munich-based photographer Michael Dalder because he took the time to find a different angle and made a beautiful picture combining the falling snow and a spot light to isolate the ski jumper in mid air.
