The rules are actually very strict. The horses do what they would do in a wild environment - horsing around that is. Polo takes advantage of the natural horse behavior. The riders are brave in my book. If they go off the horse, it's going to hurt a lot.

Cheers.


Yes very brave in my mind also .... Infact one guy in this very same match lost his front teeth(many players still wear no mouth or faceguard ) and was taken off in the ambulance due to a flying polo stick going his way by mistake . Wouldnt get me doing it no matter how much you paid me especially given the pace they go at. Half the horses are ex race horses so you can imaging the speed they get to on the field. And these guys are fast in this match as these are a couple of top Victorian teams.

Infact its not that safe being a photographer at these events either....A buddy of mine who also shoots these events and I have nearly been cleaned up behind goals on a few occasions because weve been too close to the goals (in our never ending quest to get the best damn angle) as the horses charge through from trying to either shoot or block a goal. When that happens I just stand still and keep my eye to the viewfinder( that way it doesnt look as bad ) and hope for the best :).....So far Ive had some charging horse get so close they brush me passing by but I think thats the players getting a laugh at our expense rather than anything that couldnt be controlled .

It was about all I could do to get out of these guy's way when they came across the boards.

Maybe polo is why Canon built the 800mm lens. :)

Got permission to a beaver pond that is beautiful. Being my first visit I was unaware of the layout and saw/spooked the geese and wood ducks trying to get close. With the inhabitants gone for a bit I made a path to a good vantage point and cleared a few saw briers to make a comfortable hide next visit. I sat down to see if the wood ducks might come back and after a few minutes I thought I saw one of the beavers coming from a distance. Too small for a beaver; maybe a small otter. I pulled up my camera zoomed to 400mm. What a surprise! A mink! The second time I've seen one in the wild; first with camera in hand and headed my way. It came to the beaver lodge and climbed all over it then swam to the bank right below me.

Super images and story.. I absolutely love days sneaking out on the pond's and lay in wait for the critters to come by.. One of my favourite things to do, specially at breakup which is right around the corner. The critters break open holes in the ice so they can get out from under the winters ice. its an amazing time of year. I normally send images off my camera to my friends still slaving away in their offices lol great fun

Well, I finally joined this lens club! After all the amazing images, and the critiques of this lens from photogs I would love to emulate, I decided to jump in. Well, at first glance I love the images. I look forward o downloading some images and posting them - once I finish unloading the boxes! We just moved, so I’m behind on a lot of stuff.

I hope to catch up soon - and I’ll post a few images. Thanks for all the info on this lens! Y’all have set a crazy high bar, so I won’t promise to post images as good ߘ but I’ll sure have fun trying!

Hey Jeff! Can you send me a few of your Furry Friends to practice with?

Something a little different :-) Just test shots in my garden on a very dull cloudy day of this lens and a metabones adapter mounted on an Olly E-M10 m43 body. Can't wait to try it in the field

Awesome pic.
Can’t believe I never thought to take a photo at the time but while living in Michigan came home one day and found a raccoon had opened the slider on to the porch. He was sleeping on our bed all tucked in to the pillows! Was a challenge to get him to leave. Yea we used to feed them so were very comfortable around us.

I have rules about outside pets inside Petie53... It can be a problem from time to time. Mostly everyone gets along just fine.
