Default Polo

First Polo match ever for me, this was interesting, the north side of the field was all cars backed in tailgating. Lots of people barbequing, beach chairs, tents, drinking just having a ball. The south side was what I expected tables with umbrellas, wine glasses, table cloths etc... and nicely dressed people. I was on the north with the sun in my lens. Kr with DAL 55-300

Cool! Polo is a very fun sport to watch, even if you only have a vague idea about it. I love your pictures, they give you a feel of just how hard it is to play (especially for the horses).

These are amazing shots. I have never seen a polo match, but these make me feel like I was right there with you.

You caught some great shots of the horse and rider totally off the ground. Wonderful action photography under a tough lighting condition. Nice work Hans!
