Anyone who follows my work will know how much I love to photograph ice hockey; a real photographic challenge filled with high speed action! It’s always a real treat to photograph an outdoor pond hockey tournament – different rules to a usual ice hockey game and always the hope that the sun may shine and there will be a bright blue sky!

At the beginning of June, I travelled to Sheffield to photograph the annual UK Armed Forces Ice Hockey Tournament. This was my fourth year as tournament photographer.
