The Olympic flame is one of the world’s most enduring symbols. Leaving Fisht Stadium after the Opening Ceremony, I was herded with the crowds into what I through was the wrong direction. There was nowhere to go but with the flow. Soon, as we rounded the corner, there it was – a modernistic sculpture with the flame burning brightly.
The flame dominated Olympic Park for the 17 days of the Games. On opening evening, the flame glowed with dancing waters in the background.
The image was made with a Nikon D700 with a 24-120mm lens, f4.0, 1/20th handheld at ISO 1200.
