Troy Brantner captures the joy of skating.
This photo, taken by Plymouth resident Troy Brantner, took second place in the “People and Families”
Says Brantner, “The photo is of my daughter Kristen practicing her spins at the Parkers Lake ice rink. This particular day was sunny but cold and she wanted to do some more practice. We headed that way late in the afternoon. I chose this photo because I liked that the sky was light enough to show tree silhouettes giving [it] more depth.”
We liked the way this photo captures the joy of motion of skating—with the skater’s pony tail waving behind her, and particles of ice flying into the air where her skates meet the ice.
