p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 2013 MLS DC United at Rapids


Military appreciation night. DC United winless on the road, I was expecting a great game....boy was I wrong....
0-0 tie...and to top it off, I am just having a bad go...not finding good action, actually had to rebuild my 120-300 in the media room because it started to come apart on me, and finances are killing me...very stressed out and it is showing...

1. Flag practice before the game

2. Humvee in front of the stadium

3. I am determined to find a location to get a good picture of the ball hand off.....

4. This was tough...trying to balance the exposure to get the color guard (made up of all branches of the armed forces, who know Colorado had Coast Guard and Navy)

5. Ok...I know, this is just a standard kicking the ball shot...but I love the way the 1D series and 70-200 produces images....

6. Late in the game some action was finally coming my direction...

7. This kid is a star on the USMNT U-20 team...just got back with the club

8. I actually thought this guy was rocketing a shot, but it ended up being a long pass to the corner that was called offsides....

9. These two really fought hard in the last few minutes in front of me.

10. Finally I got a great shot and it took place in the most poorly lit part of the field....

A week of no shooting before the Gold Cup games next Sunday.....grrrr

Carl,
I like #6 and think you did a good job pulling #10 out of the corner. I shoot a lot of HS sports and know what it's like when the action happens in the corners with the players facing away form the lights. . .
I have been thinking about trying the Sigma 120-300. Is that the lens you have that fell apart on you? I hope it's not the new version.

yeah, my 120-300 started to fall apart. It is the original one, non-DG, non-OS version. They do not service it anymore and every so often internal screws work their way out and need to be tightened up and to get to those screws you have to take the mount off...just a pain....

Nice shots, Carl. I like 6 and 4. Colorado Navy and Coast Guard are just prepared for the next great flood.

What is it, 2029 a comet or asteroid might hit in the pacific and turn either Utah or Colorado into ocean front property? That must be it.

I honestly love 4. Being the son of a WWII Army Corp of Engineers soldier, cousin to a Viet Nam soldier who is on The Wall, uncle to a member of the Navy Band Pacific NW, and friends with many Marines, Army, and Air Force members, I have nothing but respect for them.
