Archive Image of the Day. Image #10

The Big Red Machine. That was what the Soviet Union hockey team was called back in 1980 when I took this image in the old Stampede Coral. It was wonderful to get the opportunity to shoot international matches like this. The games were always intense especially in an Olympic year. I wish I knew who the players in this image are and the exact date of the game as I failed to note this on my chromes. Shoot with my Canon F1 and 135 mm f2.0 lens. Shutter speed would be 1/250 sec @ f4. Film stock was Fujichrome 400 pushed two stops to 1600 ISO for the low light. This game was televised so the extra lights were on for television.
