Hello
First time posting in this section and a first shooting cricket.

I went along to the 3rd day of the 2nd test at McLean Park in Nelson.

Normally a beautiful sunny location in the summer but day 2 & 3 were dark, overcast & drizzly

Did not attend the full day, left before the start of the last session. My young daughter was starting to get a bit cold and we had a 5 hour drive ahead of ourselves to get home.

This test started latter than usual, first ball at 12.00 noon as against the normal 10:30am, probably due to TV coverage. Bit of a shame, day 2 finished early due to light and I also believe that day 3 did as well.

The Black Caps (New Zealand) were looking good mid-way through the day, equalling the West Indies first innings score for the loss of 4 wickets but then, true to form, suffered a collapse, finishing the day with a first innings lead of only 62 runs.

Back at work today, and the weather down there was stunning (go figure) and the West Indies captain making a well struck 130 last I heard.

Anyway, for the pictures. As I say, first time at cricket and first time with a monopod.

All shots with a 30D, ISO between 500 & 1000, F5.6-6.3. All are slight crops at 600mm (300 2.8 with 2xTC)

Hi, sporting events, na, nothing really, just an excuse to get out of Auckland :D

It's just a hobby for me.

Welcome to the forum. Call into the GKPE thread in the POTN Lounge section and introduce yourself to the rest of the Kiwi's.

Thanks guys!

There was a bit of feeling at some stages during the day.

One of the windies bowlers lost his run up at one stage, kept going and threw the ball down the pitch and then basically lost the plot for the rest of the over :rolleyes: A bit of chat back & forth between him & Jesse Ryder and I think the umpire had a quiet chat at the end of the over. All good fun, just a shame that it wasn't a beautiful day like today.

Hi Mark, the shots are great! They certainly show the batsman's movement and action.

Nice work!

Thank you Bruce

I just wish I could have stayed for the final 2 days, much more pleasant conditions.
