This is the one shot I got of Steve's clouds last night during the football game:

Getting ready for a wedding over on Lake Vermilion. So what's your excuse? gringrin

People like the couple I photographed today remind me why I love to shoot weddings so much. Laid back, totally cool couple, big anglers. Him in his tux and her in her wedding dress, I got them out into the musky boat and they cast lures toward me for some of the pics. Would've been wild to have a toothy critter explode on one of those topwaters at boatside. What a shot that would have made. shocked

Gotta love those outdoors couples! She even kicked his butt walleye fishing on Vermilion the other day. gringrin

Ken, looked like you had great sunny skies for football this afternoon. Cool to see you're working with VCC now, too. Hope that honey-do list went well, too. gringrin

Still thinkin about Hawk Ridge next Sunday?

I like that shot Ken! The sun rays really enhance the look.

Thanks, all. Steve, I get a little VCC work once in awhile, some on spec, some asked for. This was a game I was asked to be at (and actually paid for!).

For those of you who don't know, this is kind of where I started with my photography a few years ago, and where I spend a lot of my time now:

Canon 1D Mark II, 300L 2.8 + 1.4 converter. ISO 800 Tv priority at 1/1600 f/7.1 - f/8.0

Steve, I'll be in touch about mid-week on Hawk Ridge. Supposed to fly sometime this week after work, but if it doesn't work out, next Sunday is the back-up.

The action in the first two are cool, but the third one looks like the photo on a trading card.

Third shot has all the ingredients of a great sports photo! Great group of shots. Tv huh? With the exception of panning situations or bike racing, airplane propeller shots I can't recall ever shooting anything sports related in Tv! It sure worked well for you.

I don't shoot in Tv much, but I was playing with some stuff in the second half, and that's where I was when I took these shots. Seems to work for me if I've got some room for light changes (here I was up to f/10 at times)and back ground is not as important to me.
