The story of an amazing hockey photo

Not so long ago I found a hockey photo that is quite rare in its kind. On the Ice Hockey world championships starting today in Budapest we surely won’t have a chance to take anything similar.

Better brand cards do get replaced in warranty but that’s more consolation, not solution.
