Last weekend we froze our butts off in Vegas watching three days of Rugby. This year I had a fancy new camera I got for my birthday and took pictures of the game. On Friday night I was able to sit at the bottom of the stadium steps, dangle my legs into the field area and use the railing to rest and steady the camera. I practiced capturing pictures with hopes that some would turn out sharp enough.
Rugby is quite brutal and physically tolling on these athletes and I love capturing the expressions and pain from the players when they are being tackled.
I love this picture because the Kenya athlete on the bottom looks surprised to be in that position.
Looking through my pictures I realized I really like the tackle pictures better than the running pictures. I have hundreds of pictures to look through and I'm sure I'll have many more that show action, emotion and pain.
