A Busy Week!!

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by GeoffBolte, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. Well most of you have already seen my Cross Country shots from the beginning of the week. Well here are some shots from the rest of it. I covered golf and volleyball on wednesday as well as soccer and football on friday.

    Had a decent week although I feel my Cross Country shots came out best. Anyways here is a batch of selects from the rest of the week. A lot of images bear with me and enjoy as always!

    #11 is very sharp, make me 'hear' the last strains of 'O Canada'.... :biggrin:
  4. Hey Geoff,

    You certainly captured some nice shots. Great emotion in the soccer photos.

    Now go get some rest.

    Take care,
  5. Easier said then done. Got 6 different events in 4 days. Plus some part time work in the AM, 5am-1pm. Helping out a little for a friend. I can relax end of the week while camping in the Great White Mountains of NH. Will relax then and then when I get back home will probably be doing it all once again.
