Capturing the wonders of Alberta Pond Hockey

Alberta Pond Hockey

A photo taken by Sharon Krushel (Dona Bona Photography) at the 2011 Alberta Pond Hockey Championships.

This photo was shot by Sharon Krushel on a very cold day at the Alberta Pond Hockey Championships on Lac Cardinal, northern Alberta (just outside Peace River), in January 2011. To buy a print or greeting card, or to check out more of Krushel’s work, visit her website at

This shot, titled Pond Hockey, earned quite a bit of attention and was even entered into a province-wide traveling art exhibit.

In order to capture the shot, Krushel took to the ice and ducked down into the net at the opposite end of the rink. After viewing the play through her camera and capturing the shot, a puck ‘wooshed’ by her neck, causing her to realize the potential dangers of the chosen shooting location.

Krushel attended the event just in the Nick of Time as the Alberta Pond Hockey Championships were canceled in 2012 due to logistical challenges and volunteer exhaustion.
