Here is set of photos from another Frozen Fenway hockey double header yesterday in Boston. The University of Connecticut took on the University of Maine, followed by a matchup between Northeastern University and the University of New Hampshire.
I tried to mix things up and find different pictures, but I have to admit that after shooting two straight weeks of hockey at Fenway every day, with multiple games each day, I am struggling creatively. I think I need a break from hockey.
The Boston Pride professional women’s hockey team hosted a youth clinic last night out on the ice at Frozen Fenway. Despite a little rain, this was a nice event. It’s neat to see a women’s professional team here at Fenway!
We’re taking “Frozen Fenway” in the most literal sense possible this year. It was a long, cold one out there yesterday! After snow postponed this double header on Saturday, we were back at it on Sunday in well-below freezing temperatures. It was a busy but fun day of shooting, as Boston University faced UMass and Boston College played Providence College.
These games are as much about the atmosphere as the action happening on the ice, so I tried to shoot a good balance of both. I’ve shot a lot of hockey this year so far already here, in addition to this same event two years ago, so it’s tough to stay creative. I was happy with a few frames here though.
The first gallery above is from the day game between BU and UMass. It was nice to see my grad school Alma-Mater take care of business. The second is from the night cap between BC and Providence.
Fenway Park played host to a great match up on the ice last night between Army West Point and Bentley University. Bentley made it to 2–0 all time at Frozen Fenway, with a 3–1 victory last night. Here are some images from the game.
Hockey is underway at Fenway Park! There’s going to be a lot to shoot over the next two weeks, so I’m going to try and shoot and post as much as I can. Here’s a few quick ones from Revere vs. Pembroke high schools yesterday. Just a little warm up round here.
Before hockey play begins, here are a few images from construction on the hockey rink at Fenway Park. Fenway will again play host to Capital One Frozen Fenway Presented by WEEI and NESN this coming January.
We haven’t had enough excitement at Fenway Park over the past several months, so why not throw in some hockey on top of it all?
This weekend kicked off Frozen Fenway 2014, which features high school and college hockey games, a Monster Sled tubing course, and opportunities for fans to skate out on the rink.
On Saturday, the stadium was the backdrop to two big games: Providence College vs. Merrimack College and Boston College vs. the University of Notre Dame. It was a nice change of pace and scenery, and I was excited to shoot something different around here.
I quickly realized that I’ve somehow made it this long having never shot hockey, so it was refreshing to shoot a new sport, and the hours of shooting all weekend served as some good practice. Hockey is something of a way of life up here, certainly more so than where I grew up in Baltimore. It’s all so foreign to me, but it’s definitely fun to be around.
These are my highlights from those two games. The first ended in a 1-1 tie, and Boston College was able to scrape out a victory in the second game.
I shot the third period of the BC-Notre Dame game perched in the middle of both team benches, with no glass between myself and the rink. It’s an amazing spot that’s right on top of the action, but overall, I’m just happy to walk away from those 20 minutes without a high stick or puck to the face.
