Alternative picture of the week

March 18, 2009

Whoops. We meant to load this on Friday but it is such a good shot, we thought it wasn’t too late.

Here’s Sports Pictures Editor Greg Bos: “Swiss staff photographer Pascal Lauener captures the moment perfectly when an Italian skiier takes a tumble during the men’s giant slalom in Are, Sweden. Pascal was covering the finish line arrivals when he shot this image a bit further up the course.”
