    Today...the weather is stunningly beautiful. You couldn't ask for better conditions to shoot baseball pictures. Unfortunately, the game was yesterday, when it was cloudy and drizzling rain.:frown:

    Yesterday was an important conference game, which our team won. Definetly should have went and made photos. But I just couldn't get away, and it was drizzling rain. Apparently, the game wasn't called, cause they still played.
    Hopefully, I can do some Track & Field ...photography that is...this weekend.:smile:

  6. I hear ya Jeff! The weather gods haven't been too kind this year out here in the NW :frown:

    First nice day today in 2-3 weeks and brought gear to game. My son plays on the HS team and the game was a nail-biter and his photog/Dad got caught up watching the game and didn't take too many pics...DOH!

    Oh well, the sun was shining :smile:

    That happened to me last year. My daughter is catcher on her fastpitch softball team. Last year, they made it all the way the state championship game. They were #2, playing a team that had been #1 all year. They beat #1 team, first game! (2 out of 3 series). Then lost the 2nd.
    Midway thru the third, I put the camera away, went and sat down to watch.
    I got too involved, couldn't concentrate on taking photos. Our team lost, but losing to the best team in the state isn't all that bad.
     
  8. I really "feel" for ya, Jeff. Same thing often happens to me when I spend a ton of money (to me) to buy lenses and accessories to take on a trip and it rains practically the duration of the excursion.:frown: Something about the gods, I think!:biggrin:
     
  9. in Charlotte it almost never rains on game day
    seriously
    now it's often too bright for my 30d but i got the d200 for those day
    seriously again
