4,478 clicks: Two days producing 26 photographs at the Olympic Games

— Photographing the Olympics is the easiest and hardest of assignments. Sometimes the very best photo spots were scouted out months ago, and photographers are escorted there via a red carpet. Other times, access is restricted, routes are blocked and plans are changed.

Covering the men's and women's parallel slalom events Wednesday at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia, I took 2,497 photos on two cameras and using three lenses. I flagged 115, processed 32 in Photoshop and posted 13 to an online gallery with the Steamboat Pilot & Today.
