Hello everyone!. I don't know if these belong here in People or under Sports/action (mods you choose!). I took advantage of having a week off from field sports photography as all local events where cancelled due to heavy snow fall. Here's a selection of snow funshots taken over the weekend at the local High School's fields. Kind regards Graham.

Hi Graham,

Some lovely sharp shots and I really really like 3 and 7 is simply stunning.

6 looks to be over processed, mainly over sharpened.

Overall they rock and everyone looks like they had a great time.

Great shots!

You really caught the action!

We call it "sledding" over here in the US.

Thank you for the comments Mark, I agree about #6 it was 2/3 to1 stop under & I pulled it back too much!, I should have ditched it really!.

Terry, thank you for looking in:-)



Paul, nice to hear from you again!. Thanks for the kind words it made a nice change from cold soccer fields.

Kind regards Graham.

I'm not sure right now if cold soccer fields would be preferable to 70 degrees, rain and thunderstorms. My team's first match was cancelled tonight due to field conditions and a major thunderstorm/wind storm moving through right now.

Your sleds look inviting.

Glad to see your still coaching Paul, I haven't seen you on the Sports forum for ages?(not commented asmuch as I should myself to be honest!. Sorry Mods!!).Did you get the 70-200 2.8?. Are you shooting yourself or still employ an assistant?Now i know where you lurk, I expect to see some sports shotsfrom you too :G. Kind regards Graham.
