One of the local area teams doesn't have lights at their field, so they always play their home games Saturday afternoon. I'm always thrilled when I get a chance to cover these games, mainly because it means one less game of trying to deal with awful hs field lighting for night games. To top it all off, it was a nice overcast day!

CC welcome. Shooting mainly with the 5d3 + 400 but I believe a shot or two is the 1d3 + 70-200. You can't tell from these photos, but the backdrop to the field is a beautiful view of the the Atlantic Ocean, so needless to say it's always a pleasure to shoot at the field.

6. Field Goal. Not sure why I like this one so much consider I chopped off his foot and you can't see the ball...

#4 was definitely my favorite; only because it was at the end of the first half and I knew that I had something that the editor would be happy with (which means I could leave after that and didn't need to stay into the second half)!

Football in Maine is pretty basic, and mostly 'ground and pound' where you may only have 4 or 5 passes an entire game (let alone completions!). And between getting blocked or not being in position for the play, I'm usually lucky to get anything pass related during a game.

Indeed.
