Football or soccer? Or neither?

abandoned road Articles backlight backlighting backlit photography weeds wild flowers

Having at least something in common with David Beckham, I trip up on using the word "football" when the game is locally known as "soccer". We went to watch a friend's team in an old timer's football league play an away game in Arnprior.

I went eagerly anticipating the challenge of "sports photography", quickly learning that it's not easy to get a good action shot. Half-time saw my wife and I taking a walk to offset the one we might have taken in the evening if it wasn't for being away for the game and a meal to follow.


The sun was getting low in the sky and I became caught up with an abandoned road and backlit weeds. My wife went back to the game. I stayed with the setting sun. No discredit to the game and the effort being put out. It's not the first time my camera and I have lost the plot. I returned to the pitch just in time for the final whistle.

    HI Rob:

    It is good to see your Blog up.
    Back-lit weeds and flowers are one of my favourite photo items. I especially like the one with the red/purple tones.

    When you have a chance drop by blog and let me know what you think.
