The local Butte College Roadrunners recently enjoyed their best game of the season in an easy win over their Napa Valley College opponents. By halftime the Roadrunners had compiled a 35-21 lead which gave them enough points for the victory with the eventual score ending up in Butte's favor at 61-33.
All shots were taken with D700 + 80-200 f/2.8 at 1/500, f/2.8, and ISO 5000.
Comments are welcome.
3. Player #2 led the Roadrunners with 14 points.
5. This Napa Valley player was OK after resting on the floor for a short time.
Thanks, Jon. Napa Valley didn't offer much competition to the Roadrunners in this game. I much prefer closer contests than this one turned out to be. I too got a big kick out of the facial expressions I was lucky enough to capture in #4.
If I were more skilled I wouldn’t have to trash 3/4 of the sports images I bring home! Therefore, I have to rely upon a certain amount of “good fortune.” However, I have noticed that the harder I work at this photography stuff the luckier I get! It helps that this is the kind of work that’s a lot of fun.
Thank you, Chris. I really like those gold Napa Valley uniforms. A week ago I shot a boys high school basketball tournament game where the guys were wearing very similar gold uniforms. I may be posting some shots from that game. There's more then one kind of gold in California!
