Panpa Bulletin : Oct-Nov-December 2007
42 PANPA Bulletin October-November-December 2007 Getty Images photographer Donald Miralle captured this unique image that reflected the theme of the 2006 Winter Olympic Games --- literally. The shot shows how imagination, opportunism, cre- ativity and technical skill can come together to create a memorable shot out of little. "I was based in the mountain region of Sestriere, covering mostly the alpine sports. I arrived there before the opening ceremo- nies to acclimate and take some preview photos. "Unfortunately, I found myself wak- ing up at 4am every day because of jet lag. One morning I took a walk around town, well before sunrise, in hopes of getting a preview photo. I came to the athlete village, which was surrounded by a fence with the Olympic rings on it. There were trees all around, and it was just a matter of finding one with some snow melting on it that was the right distance from the fence to capture the rings reflected in a droplet." An experienced nature and travel pho- tographer, Miralle has covered many signifi- cant events and has won several awards. Some of the major sports events he has covered are the Superbowl, World Series, Stanley Cup Playoffs, US Open of Golf, World Swimming Championships, and Indianapolis 500. This year he won NPPA Best of Photojournalism --- First Place Sports Photojournalist of the Year. In 2006 Miralle won World Press Photo First Place. His work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone, the New York and Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Times of London and the Sydney Morning Herald. This photo and others by Getty photog- raphers around the world appear in the annual Getty Images Year in Focus 06. We have four copies of the 2006 book to give away to PANPA Bulletin readers.
