Photos you won’t see in the Photo Annual

The latest Skate Slate Photo Annual is out and features some banger photos I had saved for the issue. Unfortunately, not all of my photos made the cut. Check out five photos of mine that didn’t make the cut and also two sequences featuring photos in the 2014 Photo Annual.

One photo in the 2014 Photo Annual shows Elijah Vinograd and Gonzolo Brandon battling for first place in the final race heat of the Juniors division at Pikes Peak. In the sequence, you can see Elijah was going for the outside pass and slid out while Gonzolo holds on to it for the win.

In this next sequence, there is more context given to the crash photo published in the Photo Annual. Tamara Prader, Victoria Waddington, Emily Pross, Katie Neilson, and Marisa Nuñez all get mixed up in a big pile-up during a semi-final heat for the women’s division. They all got up surprisingly fast.

To see the photos in those sequences in large print, get your hands on the Photo Annual. Now, here are five photos that I had hoped to see in print, but didn’t make the cut. They are all 1920 pixels at the widest so should work as a desktop background for many people. Enjoy!
