Ultimate Frisbee

I went up to Champions Park to photograph dogs with my 55-300 zoom and my new DA*200 as kind of a comparison. It was stupidly hot and no sane dog owner was walking a dog. However, in an adjacent recreation area 8 teams of humans were playing Ultimate Frisbee, a sport I’d never witnessed, so I drove on over. Not being familiar with the rules I soon realized I could not anticipate where the action was going to be. So I just tried to follow one easily identifiable player, like the black player with the red head band or the one legged guy.

I prefocused on the turn and fired away. So this was just luck. My son is the one still upright in front.. Fortunately no injuries

K1 and Sigma 70-200 f/2.8. A couple of my favorite shots from a recent tennis match.

An early softball game meant having enough light to pull out the Bigma.





And one with the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8.

I shot our spring football game last night (and the Powderpuff game at halftime.) It's always nice to have plenty of light so I can pull out the Bigma. It's also nice that I can actually be on the field for some of the shots. It makes for much different perspectives.

Not every day I get to go to an NCAA Division 1 Championship game practically in my backyard with a "home team" to root for.




I didn't do very well as far as the photography is concerned BUT the home team did just fine.

Yup, my copy of the DA L 50-200 WR has been absolutely stellar for some reason.
